It's time to start writing to Santa!

It's that time of year again when Santa's elves are gearing up to receive letters to Santa - with a little help from New Zealand Post.

Every year New Zealand Post receives tens of thousands of letters from children with their Christmas wish lists to deliver to Santa.

"Sitting down and writing a letter to Santa and then putting it in the post is a Christmas tradition for many families," says Tina Morgan, spokesperson for New Zealand Post.

"Messages can be sent to Santa online too, and this year we've set up a new interactive website for kids to create and decorate their own digital postcard for Santa."

"Whether you're writing a traditional letter or sending a digital postcard, remember to include your name, address and age," says Tina. "Write to Santa and see what you get back!"

The address for letters, no stamp required, is:

Santa Claus, Santa's Workshop, North Pole 0001

Or to make and send a digital postcard, visit www.nzpost.co.nz/writetosanta

Letters and digital postcards need to be in the mail to the North Pole by December 4 to receive a personalised response.
