A Letter From Santa

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.


  1. The letter from Santa is not new, I remember getting one as a child. It's a great idea, though.

    1. Oh, maybe they just have an ad campaign going this year? Do you still have the letter? I wonder if they're still using the same letter, or have they updated...

    2. No, it's be lost during the last, mmm, almost 30 years :)

  2. Speaking of being happy with cool stuff, I wanted to reply to our mentioning London, many posts back. I went to Forbidden Planet. As you note, it's small, but what I did was buy. books from downstairs. I also went 30 minutes out by tube to the Who Shop for BBC approved stuff and a long charity museum with BBC costumes and props stuff. You enter it through the Tardis.

    You liked the Egypt part of the British museum, down on the ground floor. I thought to go ask at info, "I didn't see any mummies. Are there any?" Yes! Up on the fourth floor. It's a very long exhibit. I kept having to bite my tongue to keep from calling out, "Where are you, Scooby Doo?"

    1. Sounds like you had a good trip, that exhibition sounds fun! And there is a definite Scooby Doo vibe at the museum :)


Hello, stranger. What's on your mind?
