5 - Celebration

Hi (Name),

Merry Christmas! Can you believe it is almost time for me to visit you in (City, State)? I hope you and your family are having fun preparing for the Christmas season.

We sure are busy here at the North Pole. Mrs. Claus has been busy baking cookies and candies, and the elves are hard at work in the toy workshop. Rudolph and all the other reindeer are outside exercising and getting ready for their flight around the world.

A few weeks ago, we all took a break from our work and celebrated by having a big party in the Great Hall here at the North Pole. The elves decorated the Christmas tree; and Mrs. Claus made all kinds of goodies for everyone to eat. Then we all gathered around and sang Christmas carols and had a great time. You should have seen all the reindeer. Dancer and Prancer were dancing, and all the other reindeer cheered them on. But after that night of fun, we went right back to work because it won’t be long before it is time to load the sleigh for our long journey.

(Name), I am happy to report that you are at the top of my nice list again! Mrs. Claus and I are so proud of you. Be sure to keep up the good work! Be sure to listen to (Parent 1) and (Parent 2) and be kind to your friends. Make sure to tell (friend’s name) and (friend’s name) that I will be visiting them also on Christmas Eve.

Well, I better go for now. Mrs. Claus is calling me from the kitchen. I hope she has a fresh batch of sugar cookies for me to taste! I sure am looking forward to visiting you in (City, State). Be sure to hang your stocking and go to bed as early as possible. I will try to be really quiet when I put the gifts under your tree. I want to tell you a little secret. I love seeing your special little (Dog/cat), (Name of pet). (He/she) always watches me put the gifts under the tree, and then I share my cookies with (him/her). (He/She) is so cute. Be sure to leave some milk and cookies for me again this year and something special for the reindeer.
Merry Christmas!

Santa Claus
