Santa awaits Christ­mas mail

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

It’s that time of the year again, and Santa and Mrs Claus are wait­ing to hear from Kiwi kids.

Santa was in touch with New Zealand Post this week and is invit­ing chil­dren around New Zealand to write and tell him their spe­cial Christ­mas wishes – in­clud­ing any presents they hope to re­ceive.

He said he was amazed at last year’s re­sponse and is keenly await­ing another bumper load of let­ters this year.

‘‘ See­ing my snow- cov­ered let­ter­box stuffed with mail is one of my favourite sights. It re­ally gets me in the mood for mak­ing and wrap­ping presents,’’ he said.

Santa said he’s had a bit of time off since last Christ­mas and is rar­ing to go again.

‘‘We’ve got the full team on standby – my­self and Mrs Claus are match ready and the elves and rein­deer have been through rig­or­ous pre­sea­son train­ing.

‘‘There’s a lot of work to do – we know that Kiwi kids re­ally love their Christ­mases – but I’m con­fi­dent the team will work well again this year and sup­port me in per­son­ally re­spond­ing, by let­ter, to all the kids in New Zealand who con­tact me.’’

Santa said to at­tach a stamp and ad­dress your let­ter to him at: Santa Claus Santa’s Workshop North Pole 0001 He said don’t for­get to clearly in­clude your name, full ad­dress and post­code.
