Everychild under a certain age sends a letter to Santa, confirming they have been good during the past year, and listing the presents they would like on December 25.
These used to be sent up the chimney until chimneys became redundant. They can, of course, also be left on the mantelpiece for the Post Fairy to collect during the night.
There are also other ways of communicating with the great man: websites offer a free email reply and others will send a card or letter for a fee.
The NSPCC will organise a letter from Santa to children or grown-ups for a suggested donation of £5, so you know your money is going to a good cause. (www.christmas.nspcc.org.uk/SantaLetter) .
Children writing to Santa via the Royal Mail could get a card back for free.
Letters should be sent to: Santa/Father Christmas, Santa’s Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ, before December 6.
“Santa will respond to as many letters as possible, in between getting the sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve.”
