With Christmas peeking around the corner, we’re scratching our heads wondering what the kiddos want to unwrap under the tree this year.
NZ Post is giving Kiwi kids a direct link to Father Christmas with their ‘Write to Santa’ postal service.
For 25 years, they’ve been in cahoots with the big man in red, offering our little ones the chance to send their wish lists directly to the North Pole.
And guess what? Santa’s dishing-out replies in both Te Reo Māori and English.
Writing to Santa is easier than finding a car park at the mall on Christmas Eve.
Just hop on to the NZ Post website here, before the 21st of December, and craft your special letter to the man in red.
You can expect a jolly response within 24 hours of sending your message. Speedy, huh?
And if you want a reply from Santa in Te Reo Māori? Well, you're in luck! When you’re on the website, tapping away your wishlist to the man in red, just select your preferred language response in the dropdown box and select Te Reo Māori.
But hey, if you're feeling a bit more old-school and want that personal touch, grab a pen and paper, and let your little one scribble to their heart's desire.
Address it to; Santa Claus, c/o Santa’s Workshop, North Pole 0001.
Don't forget to write your name and address on the back, or Santa’s response might get lost in the mail.
Pop it in the nearest NZ Post box or any of their shops. Plus, Santa’s got a special deal going on—no postage stamp is required for these letters.
They’ll have Dasher, Dancer, Prancer and Vixen make sure it gets into the safe hands of Santa, or at least Mrs. Clause.
The cutoff for posting hand-written letters with a personal response from the North Pole is November 27th. Santa’s Helpers are gearing up, aiming to land those replies in your letterbox from mid to late December.
So, tell the kids to get their letters ready, because Santa’s waiting to sprinkle some North Pole magic right here in NZ.
