Enjoy a Christmas tradition that is being handed down from my husband's cherished family memories to you.
Letters from Father Christmas are a collection of letters written and illustrated by J. R. R. Tolkien between 1920 and 1943 for his children, from Father Christmas. You can find the book on Amazon here.
Here is how this tradition goes! Feel free to adapt to your liking.
1. You write letters to your children from Father Christmas using the stationary in this PDF printable. In your letter you can tell fun and imaginative stories about the North Pole, the silly antics of the reindeer, the adventures of the polar bears, and any other creative tales you'd like to share with your children.
2. Your children can write letters on the lined paper to St. Nicholas, Santa Claus, about the year they have had, what they would like for Christmas, and any other thoughts or sentiments they'd like to share about the season.
3. Optional: Throughout the Christmas season, read J.R.R. Tolkien's Letters From Father Christmas to weave in enriching literature and set a foundation for presenting this tradition.
Keep the letters your children write in their stocking or a special box along with the Letters from Father Chritsmas to keep as heirlooms. My husband's family kept their letters to Santa in each of their stockings and I've even had the opportunity to see my husband's writing, thoughts, and Christmas wishes from when he was a little boy. How sweet is that? This has been a tradition that's filled our hearts!
