SANTA CLAUS HAS urged all of the Irish boys and girls to write and post their letters to him as soon as possible.

In a statement issued through An Post, Santa said his workshop is very busy with all the elves working really hard to get the gifts ready in time for Christmas Eve.

“I always look forward to reading letters from the boys and girls in Ireland and I especially like it when they include lots of colourful drawings of Rudolph and Mrs Claus,” he said.

Here’s what Santa is advising all the boys and girls to do:

  • Write their letter straight away
  • Put it in an envelope, seal it and address it to ‘Santa Claus, The North Pole’;
  • Write their own name and full postal address (in very clear handwriting) on the top left-hand corner of the front of the envelope;
  • Stick a 70c stamp on the top right-hand corner and
  • Post it in a green An Post post box – that’s important!

He said his good friends An Post are helping him to reply to as many children’s letters as possible.

Santa also revealed Rudolph’s nose is “getting brighter by the day with excitement”.

“I hope you have a magical and peaceful Christmas.”
