With just over six weeks to go until Christmas, Royal Mail is once again lending a helping hand to one of its most special customers, Father Christmas. For 58 years, Royal Mail has been helping to make Christmas wishes come true by sending children’s letters to the North Pole.
Now Santa’s team of helpers at Royal Mail is gearing up to deliver the hundreds of thousands of letters sent to him by children from all across the UK.
Axelle Galera, Royal Mail Chief Elf, who ensures children’s letters reach Santa at his grotto in Reindeerland in the North Pole, said, “Royal Mail plays a very special part in the nation’s Christmas preparations. We are proud that for 58 years, Santa has allowed us to help manage the hundreds of thousands of special letters he receives from boys and girls across the country.
“His special team of elves at Royal Mail especially enjoy taking a peek at what children are asking for as well as helping Santa reply to these special letters. Don’t forget to include your full name and address on your letter so Santa can reply to you!”
Later this month, Royal Mail will reveal the definitive guide to what children actually want for Christmas, with a ‘Top 10’ list of the most wished-for toys, in a unique poll based on the children’s own letters.
To ensure Santa receives your letter on time, please make sure you write to him, using the correct address, on a stamped envelope.
Don’t forget Santa needs to know your full name and address to reply.
Santa is happy to receive your cards and letters now but because of the very busy Christmas ahead, children should post their letters no later than Friday 10 December 2021.
