Writing a letter to Santa is a lifetime tradition passed down from generation to generation. The joy of penning down our Christmas wishes and hopes is a magical way to build excitement. Whether it’s tiny scrawls from those barely young enough to write or the poised paragraphs by older children, it’s a simple tradition that shouldn’t be overlooked. I’ve put together a FREE letter to Santa template to help you get started so your little one can write a letter to Santa!
Christmas is such a magical time for children. It can be difficult to keep the magic alive – especially as children get older and start asking questions. Christmas traditions are a great way to spark excitement but also help you know exactly what it is they want for Christmas too!! A letter to Santa is a great way to ‘influence’ their ideas and curb their enthusiasm. Especially with the cost of everything increasing!!
Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year, and it can really add some magic and joy to the mundane. Embrace some Christmas traditions and get in the Christmas spirit!

Reflecting on Tradition:
As a child, I vividly recall detailing my ‘good’ deeds and earnest wishes in my annual letter to Santa. Fast forward to today, and I’m delighted to continue this tradition with my sons, Henry and Hugo. Their letters, carefully crafted for Santa, are not just a wishlist; they’re a canvas of joy and anticipation.
Neatness for Santa’s Sake:
We’ve instilled a bit of North Pole etiquette, too—neat and legible writing. After all, Santa’s got a list to check twice! Both boys, now adept little wordsmiths, eagerly hand their letter to Santa during our annual visit. It’s become a beautiful way for them to practice writing and keep the magic alive.

Stop The Pressure
I just wanted to take this moment to say that with the glitz and glamour of Christmas can also come the additional pressure and stress. Take full control of your experience and leave the comparisons and pressure behind. Embrace this holiday and enjoy the moment without the feeling that you need to spend more, do more or be more. If Christmas brings you stress, then it isn’t worth it for you. Your version of Christmas will look different to everyone else, and that’s absolutely how it should be. We put too much pressure on ourselves at this time of year – enjoy the moment – especially if you have little ones as they grow up too fast!!
Thank you for stopping by! Check out my last post here.
Love as always!
