Santa’s wait­ing for a letter

Stratford Press - - Proud To Support All Local Sports In Our Community -

Santa’s elves are gear­ing up to re­ceive mail for Santa and Mrs Claus — with a little help from New Zealand Post. So get writ­ing!

Writ­ing to Santa is a fam­ily tra­di­tion for many Kiwi fam­i­lies. Bryan Dob­son, NZ Post spokesper­son, says they love helping chil­dren send off their wish lists.

“Ev­ery year NZ Post re­ceives tens of thou­sands of mail from kids all over New Zealand. Mes­sages can be sent to Santa online us­ing our in­ter­ac­tive web­site or by post.”

To send a dig­i­tal post­card, visit www.nz­post.co.nz/ write­tosanta. Chil­dren can drag and drop favourite items from fairy lights, milk and cook­ies to presents to make their post­cards to Santa spe­cial.

“Santa’s ready and look­ing for­ward to a snow-cov­ered let­ter­box stuffed with mail.”

The ad­dress for let­ters, no stamp re­quired, is:

Santa Claus c/- Santa’s Work­shop North Pole 0001 En­sure your full name, ad­dress, and post­code are on the back of your en­ve­lope. Let­ters need to be sent by De­cem­ber 7 to re­ceive a re­sponse in the mail from Santa.

“Christ­mas is all about tra­di­tions like this. NZ Post has been de­liv­er­ing Christ­mas for New Zealan­ders for al­most 180 years, and we can’t wait to de­liver Christ­mas again this year,” Bryan says.
