*Bump! Not long left for you to take advantage of this freebie for the kids!*
Ho, ho, ho! Merry Christmas!
This year, your child could very well receive a letter back from Santa Clause himself if you wish. Canada Post is offering a free mail service which will send your child a personalized letter from Santa Claus - wouldn't that be so exciting!?
The details are very specific, so pay close attention to detail for sure. You need to have your child write their letter to Santa and then you must mail it to a specific address in order to receive a letter back. They will open up the letter, and write back a personalized letter to each child that participates. It actually sounds like a fun job, honestly. So have your child write to this address, and wait excitedly for the response:
You must mail your child's Christmas wish list no later than the 16th of December. Also don't forget to include your child's name and return address or else you won't get a letter back. While Santa may know every child and where they live, Canada Post does not. You might be able to make this offer go hand-in-hand with your Elf on the Shelf plans.
I wonder if you added your own letter, if Canada Post would take any suggestions with what they respond. I wonder what they would even respond to begin with? My child is almost three and is just starting to grasp the concept of Christmas, so I may try this out this year just for my own curiousity. I am sure this is not the first year that Canada Post has offered this Santa Letter Service, so maybe some of my friends and family will have a better idea how it works. All I know is that my three year old is only asking for a rabbit for Christmas this year, and I am 99% sure my cats would eat it. So hopefully Canada Post doesn't respond saying that he will get that rabbit. My cats would be more than thrilled!
Moosers, have you used this Santa service before?
