5 tips for writing a letter to Santa

5 tips for writing a letter to Santa

Lilia wrote a letter to Santa today and soon enough, it will be on its way to the North Pole.

Every year, she draws a picture or writes a note to Santa on Christmas Eve.This year, I told her she could write her letter early and she looked at me like I was crazy. "Santa gets letters at the North Pole?"

I told her that I used to write letters to Santa and before I knew it, she had surrounded herself with paper, envelopes and art supplies.

While writing her letter, Lilia came up with some fine writing tips that I wanted to share:

1. Write your letter using your best handwriting. Ask your mom or dad to spell things if you need help.

2. Don't make your list too long because Santa is busy.

3. Don't forget to ask for presents for other people in your family.

4. Tell Santa why you've been good.

5. Make sure you decorate your letter and draw nice pictures.

The thing about asking for presents for other people in your family is cute. Although, I did see some requests for presents for Franky that seemed suspicious. If she says Franky wants a glitter sparkle pony makeover kit, you might want to think twice about that one, Santa.

Happy writing!
