Royal Mail have announced their recommended Christmas cut off dates for sending mail and are ensuring their number one customer receives letters from children.

Santa’s sharing Christmas intel

Once Santa has received his letters, Royal Mail will relieve a definitive guide to what children actually want for Christmas, with a ‘Top 10’ list of the most wished for toys, in a unique poll based on the children’s own letters.

“Royal Mail plays a very special part in the nation’s Christmas preparations. We are proud that for 58 years, Santa has allowed us to help manage the hundreds of thousands of special letters he receives from boys and girls across the country. His special team of elves at Royal Mail especially enjoy taking a peek at what children are asking for as well as helping Santa reply to these special letters. Don’t forget to include your full name and address on your letter so Santa can reply to you!”
– Axelle Galera, Royal Mail Chief Elf

If you want to send a letter to Santa, use the address below:
Santa/Father Christmas,
Santa’s Grotto,
Reindeerland,
XM4 5HQ

Don’t forget Santa needs to know your full name and address to reply.

Santa is happy to receive your cards and letters now but because of the very busy Christmas ahead, children should post their letters no later than Friday 10 December 2021.
