Last year I was organised enough to get my little boys to write their letters to Santa and post them thanks to a special service offered in Canada – there’s something about sending a real letter and getting one back from the North Pole that is rather wonderful. There isn’t time for the letter now but there is still time to email so you can do it through the Canada Post or through Northpole.com which I like because it offers lots of Christmas games and a way to track Santa.
