Once we’re into December I sit down with the kids as they write their letters to Santa. This has changed over the years. In the past I used to write for them, then they progressed to tracing over or copying my writing and now of course they all write their letters independently. Some years we get out the paint and glitter and other years just our pencil case of colours. We always seem to have stickers though!
Read on to find out where to send your letters to Santa in 2021 to get a free reply:
Letters to Santa (post updated 2021)
“Letter to Santa” templates and printables are available but my kids prefer to use plain paper which they can set out and decorate their own way. The only things you need are paper, envelopes, and pencils.
The girls wrote their letters then decorated them and the envelopes. I always check that they have written their full name and address (including postcode) neatly so that Santa can reply. Sometimes they omit this (“Santa already knows where we live, he’s magic!”) so I add it later just in case as even the magical need admin help in their life!
Post Your Letter to Santa at your Local Town Hall
Then we post our letters. Most towns offer a local letter to Santa service. Our local town hall and also our library have postboxes this year. As long as we remember to add our address then we always get a reply delivered to our home.
Post Your Letter to Santa at Tour Local Library
Pembrokeshire libraries offer a letter to Santa service but Santa has asked children to pick up their replies when they return their library books which is a good idea as he is very busy. I think the last posting date at Tenby Library is 14th December and for Milford Haven Library is 16th December but please check at your local library.
Posting Letters to Santa Nationwide
If you don’t have a free local “Letter to Santa” service then head to your local postbox or Post Office. Every year the Royal Mail helps deliver letters to Santa. Send your letter to the following address:
Ogof Sion Corn
Gwlad Y Ceirw
Send your letter by 10th December and remember to use a stamp. There is no need to include a Stamped Address Envelope for your reply.
How to get a Letter from Santa if You’ve Missed the Postal Date
We’re all busy at this time of the year. Don’t worry if you’ve missed the last postal date for sending your letter to Santa. Thanks to digital magic you can print off a copy of your child’s reply from Santa on the Royal Mail website.
Schools Sending Letters to Santa
If you’re a teacher who would like to send a letter to Santa from your class, you can! The Royal Mail ask that you send your letters to Santa by Friday 3rd December. For more information on sending letters to Santa if you are a school, click here.
We get so excited when our letters from Santa arrive and I’ve kept every single one over the years.
Will you be sending a letter to Santa this year?
