Well, it’s nearly that time of year again. The air has turned cold, the nights are long, the days are short, there are festive decorations and bright fairy lights in homes, towns, and cities all across the long, which can mean only one thing – Christmas is coming.
Whether you’re a fan of the holidays or not, it’s safe to say that kids most definitely are, and if you’re looking for ways of bringing some magic into their lives, why not help them create the ultimate letter to Santa this year?
Every year around the Holidays, children will write letters to Santa, explaining how they’ve been good and asking for certain toys and items to unwrap and open on Xmas morning. Rather than having them just scribble down the names of toys and gifts on an old piece of paper this year, why not get a little more creative and inventive?
Here’s a look at several tips on how to write a letter to Santa.

Basically, the first gift that they ask for at the top of the page is the one which they will want the most, so you can then head out there, or jump online, and do your best to prioritize that gift over the others.
