For children, the Christmas season often begins by writing a letter to Santa. In addition to offering some insight into what Christmas gift is a "must-have" for your child, this activity also provides an opportunity to stress the importance of kindness for others by including wishes for pets or siblings as well as the community at large. Before your child mails his letter, don't forget to save a copy for your family scrapbook!

Many communities have volunteers who will collect letters to Santa and write a personalized response to each child. However, you can also create your own letter from Santa using one of The Printable Holiday's convenient templates. Simply choose the design you like, personalize the text to fit your child's holiday wish list, and print on the paper of your choice.

Even if you already keep up with extended family and friends via social media, taking the time to write a family Christmas letter can be a way to reflect on all that's happened over the past year. Write a paragraph describing each family member's most important events from the year, then add personal messages or wishes for the future. Including a collage of your favorite family photos is a great option to consider as well.

With email and text messaging replacing much of our previous written communication, receiving a letter in the mail feels like a special event. Let The Printable Holiday help you create Christmas letters that will bring holiday joy to their recipients!
