I just have to share this. The Finnish postal service is offering something special this year: a letter from Santa Claus. Best of all, you can order it from anywhere in the world. Here's the info from the Posti online store:
A letter from Santa Claus - What a great gift!
Receiving a personal letter is a special occasion for any child. If the letter should come from Santa Claus himself, it will obviously be extra special.
Santa Claus writes his letters at Santa Claus’ Post office. Each letter is sealed with a Christmas stamp and with the Arctic Circle postmark.
With each letter, Santa Claus will enclose a certificate of niceness and a postcard to colour in.
The letters are available in 13 different languages, so you can surprise children or friends all over the world. The letter is personalised, addressing the recipient by his/her first name.
Place your orders to European countries by December 7th and other countries as early as December 1st. Orders to Finland can be placed by December 14th.
The language options for the letter are Finnish, Swedish, English, German, Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian and Dutch and recently also in Portuguese and Polish!
How cool is that? This will make quite a few little ones very happy.
