All you have to do is download a template of your letter to Santa from the website and fill it out with your wishes for Christmas and beyond, or even just to share your best wishes to Father Christmas this festive period.
This year, the deadline to send your letters to Santa Claus has been moved earlier, which means there is not long left to make sure you receive a reply.
From how it works to the earlier cut-off date, here's everything you need to know about sending a receiving a letter to and from Santa Claus.
How to send a letter to Santa Claus
Royal Mail has teamed up with Hallmark to give people the chance to send a letter to Santa Claus this year - and receive a personalised reply!
All you have to do is simply write your letter to Santa Claus (you can download a template online) and address it to:
- Santa/Father Christmas, Santa's Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ
While sending the letter is free, you will have to pay for a stamp (£1.25 for first class and 75p for second class) before posting.
In your letter, make sure you write your name and include your address so Santa can write back to you.
