Magic of the Holidays: Creating a Letter FROM Santa

71LztV6VcmL._SL1000_The magic of Christmas is something that starts from an early age and never really leaves. From putting up the tree to trimming the mantle with garland and lights, there’s nothing I love more than decorating for my favorite holiday. Christmas is my favorite time of year, and sharing that love of the holidays with my family is something I’ve always loved. Each year, my family spent days putting up decorations and that tradition followed me once I got married. One of the first purchases my husband and I made together was a Christmas tree. We love spending hours scouring the local décor stores for the year’s theme, and shopping our local grocery store for Christmas treats. But, the biggest treat of all is seeing just what Santa puts under the tree.

Even as an adult, the love and magic is Santa is something that sticks. My kids knew early on exactly who he was and what kind of joy he brings each Christmas morning. Even before they could write, sending letters directly to the North Pole was a tradition from the start. Each year, my little ones would tell me exactly what they wanted for Christmas, and we would work together to write a letter to Santa.

With Vons Supermarkets, Santa Writes Back!

Even though writing a letter to Santa is the highlight of our Christmas preparations, we never expected to get a letter back – until now! With shopping for our Christmas treats at our local Vons supermarket, I overheard a little birdy tell me about a way to get Santa to write back to my little ones. Of course, I jumped at the opportunity to let them know Santa was really getting their letters. The Letter From Santa Program is perfect for those who still have the magic of Christmas in their hearts.

Going online and completing the Letter From Santa is easy and quick. Plus, it’s perfect for surprising my little ones on Christmas or the days leading up to the big flight. I simply visit FullSizeRender-25my local shop’s website and locate the campaign. After entering in some of the required fields, I can start easily constructing the letter. The process uses fill-in-the-blank fields to write a personalized letter to your child based on his or hers age group. For my little ones, I can add in the names of their brothers or sisters, best friends, relatives, and pets. There’s even a space to mention the one specific toy they asked for to make it even more personal. Once the fields are entered, I can preview the letter to make sure everything look A-Okay before saving. The entire process takes just about 5 minutes and it guaranteed lots of smiles.

The Letter From Santa Campaign Brings Christmas Cheer

The letter gets emailed directly to me along with an envelope addressed to my little ones from the North Pole. I can put the letter in the tree on Christmas morning, or I can place it in the mailbox for them to find the next time we check the mail together.

If you’re looking for more ways to engage your children in the Christmas spirit, the Letter From Santa Campaign provides the best way for your little ones to feel the magic of the season all month long!
