Hurry and write your letter to Santa

Warm greetings from the North Pole to you and to all your dear readers! Santa has asked if you would remind all the boys and girls to post their Christmas letters to him as soon as possible.

All the elves are busy in the workshop making and packing toys and gifts. Mrs Claus is checking lists of names on her computer and planning the route for Santa’s journey on Christmas Eve. Santa loves reading the letters from children in Ireland, particularly when they have taken the time to write the letter.

So all they need do is: Put their letter in an envelope; Write their own name and address (in very clear writing) on the top left-hand corner of the front of the envelope; Stick a 60c stamp on the top right-hand corner and post it in a green post box to: Santa Claus, The North Pole.

It’s as simple as that! Once again this year, many helpers in An Post are helping Santa to reply to as many letters as possible before Christmas.

So it’s important that the girls and boys get writing and posting straight away — it’s such a busy time for us all. I hope you have a very magical Christmas.
