Kids – Write Your Letters to Santa

Kids – Write Your Letters to Santa

Santa Claus has advised New Zealand Post that his special mailroom at the North Pole is up and running, and he is looking forward to receiving letters from children all over New Zealand this Christmas.

Children can write to Santa by sending a letter to his home address of Santa’s workshop, c/o The North Pole, or by contacting him online via the New Zealand Post website at www.nzpost.co.nz/christmas, says Lucy Jackson, Santa’s helper at New Zealand Post.

“Santa has advised us that some children began writing to him as early as January with their wish lists! With Christmas almost upon us he is urging all children to send their letters in as soon as they can, so that he can start reading and replying to each one.”

When children visit the New Zealand Post website at www.nzpost.co.nz/christmas they can click on “Write to Santa” to send him a wish list of presents. Children will need to enter their name and a return email or postal address to get a reply from Santa either by email or by letter.

“Children writing to Santa through the mail are reminded to attach a 45-cent stamp, include their return address and try to send their letter before 15 December so that he can reply before Christmas.”

Last year more than 76,000 children either posted letters to Santa or sent their wish list to him online. Popular wishes included Power Rangers and Robosapiens, as well as classic board games and old favourites like Barbie and Lego, said Ms Jackson.
