Dear [NAME],
Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! I’ve been making my list and checking it twice, and I found out that you are on the list of [AGE]-year-old [BOY/GIRL]s who have been nice this year. I’m very proud of you.

We have been very busy at the North Pole getting ready for Christmas. Mrs. Claus has been baking cookies, the reindeer have been practicing their flying, and the elves are building lots of toys. I know that you want [WISH LIST TOY(S)], and I’ll do my best to bring you something that you’ll really like.

I’m looking forward to visiting [AWAY FROM HOME LOCATION] on Christmas and seeing you and [PEOPLE CHILD WITH BE WITH FOR THE HOLIDAYS]. I know that you’re going to have a great time at [AWAY FROM HOME LOCATION]. Rudolph is particularly excited that he will be able to see [SPECIAL PERSON] when we visit.

Be sure to go to bed early on Christmas Eve because the reindeer can only stop at houses where the good little boys and girls are already asleep. And don’t forget to leave out some carrots for the reindeer and some cookies and milk for me because we get hungry delivering so many toys all around the world.

Have a very merry Christmas!

Love, Santa
