Dear [NAME],

Ho! Ho! Ho! Merry Christmas! Thank you for your letter. I was so happy to hear from you. I have been making my list and checking it twice, and I’m so glad to see you’re on the Nice list again this year. I’m very proud of you for being such a good [BOY OR GIRL]!

Rudolph and I are looking forward to visiting you in [HOMETOWN] on Christmas Eve. The elves have been very busy this year making toys for children all around the world, and I know that you would really like me to bring you a [TOY]. I will do my best. Santa has many children who ask for toys each year, and I always try to bring something you’ll like. My favorite part of Christmas is just being able to make so many kids happy and share the gifts the elves have worked on all year because sharing is what makes Christmas so special.

[HOMETOWN] is one of my first stops this year, so be sure to go to bed early because my magic only works when everyone is asleep. And don’t forget to leave out some cookies and milk for me and some carrots for the reindeer! We work up quite an appetite delivering so many toys all around the world.

Love,
Santa
