Do you encourage your children or grandchildren to write a letter to Santa? Do you save them as momentos? When my brothers were small I used to help them write their letters to Santa. I still have a couple of them tucked away as momentos... which is great considering that they are 27 and 29 now. My niece and nephew have done it a time or two but I think they are just about too old now...she is 12 and he is 10. He might still want to but I doubt she will...she thinks she is too old for alot of things. Will you get your little ones to do it? Do they still believe?

Santa Signature - Santa Signature in red
I think it is great to see kids writing letters to Santa, kids stay kids for such a short time now it is sad but to see them still being kids is a joy. For those who like to send a letter back to their kids from sants here is is signature....

Yeah I don't like lying to childeren, so I don't tell them there is a santa clause. I see that as dishonest.

Oh, yes, my grandchildren get a big thrill writing letters to Santa Claus! When my kids were little they used to write letters also! Oh, definitely, I stand strong on my unwavering beliefs!

I think this is really cute to save letter for later. I have benn writing this letters too as a kid, but don't know what happen to them. I am sure when I would have kids I would encourage my kids to write letters, but i am not sure if it would be for Santa Clous, or Jesus,(lol) since i am from europe and my finacee is american. But I am sure I would save them for them to have mementos later.

Yes I have to get them to write a letter to santa, for the simple reason that it is the only way that I know for definite what they want santa to bring. That way then they know too that they cant keep changing their minds last minute!!! I have kept the first letter that my son wrote to santa as a momento. :-)

my daughter is 6 each year we write a letter to santa and each year he responds back... she gets lots of joy out of writing santa her list.. the lat few years though she asked me to write everything because she couldnt spell and or write that well so i wrote and she drew or pasted a picture next to what it was that she was asking for. this year she went all out got out her craft and scrapbooking boxes and made him a really crafty card.. she is in first grade so she is learning to spell she wanted to do it all by her self and she did a preetyy awesome job. she even made a handmade envelope and decorated it. She hasnt mailed it out yet becasuse she said there might be something else she wants to add but shes not sure uet.. lol shes so adorable!

If my daughter comes up to me asking for help with a letter to Santa then I'll help her. Otherwise, I don't mention it to her at all.

My daughter is seventeen now and she no longer believes in much of anything. Teenagers are a pain. She did write letters to santa when she was little. I have a few but I did not keep all of them. I figure it is something I show her children if and when she has any. My daughter has writen a wish list for the past five years. She is to list all items that she would like to have this way I have a large range of items to pick from. She usually lists books, music, and movies. I take her every year a week before Christmas and let her spend $100 on clothing that she gets for Christmas. Her list is so big that she is always surprised when you unwraps the gifts. I miss my little girl who wrote to santa but they do not stay little forever. They grow up.

I think writing letters to santa gives kids something to hope for and wish for. It is exciting to them to think that writing letters will actually get them what they want on christmas, or just the fact that they think they are talking to santa about christmas and the elves.

hey t68, When my son was little he believed in santa & my man even dressed as santa & acted like he was putting the gifts under the tree-I would wake my son "just in time" to catch santa & he was so excited-anyway-yes he wrote letters to santa for years & we saved them all-we let him look the the foot locker we've been saving his childhood things in on his 17th birthday & he saw a few of them he was really surprised. +'s |:)

Yes, yes and yes. I had my son write a letter to Santa telling him why he wanted certain toys. He was so sweet. He not only told Santa what he wanted and why, he told Santa which of his old toys Santa could take to the poor children who didn't have any toys. I have been talking to him about being greedy and how there are children who don't have any toys and he wanted to know why Santa didn't give them any toys. That was a hard topic to answer. So, I told him that Santa does give them toys. That little kids who have lots of toys, like my son, tell Santa which toys are ready to be loved by someone else and that Santa picks them up and then gives them to other children. He was so sweet, he started gathering toys up that day. I really just wanted him to limit his letter to those toys that he REALLY wanted and to not be so greedy about asking for everything under the sun.

I have one daughter and one son who lives near me that has children,the rest do not have children or they live further away,so No i did not get a chance to do this..the grandchildren that believes in santa live further away ,even though we are close i do not see them on a day to day basis...The grandchildren that i have that lives near me is 5 of them..My son and his wife,and my daughter and her husband for some reason always taught their children that there was no santa ,and that they were the santa.Lol...I do not know Why they chose to do this but they did so i have never gotten the chance to do this with my grandchildren...When my children were small i would give them a pen and paper and tell them to make out their letter to santa as to what they wanted for christmas..so they made out their list and i took it to send to Santa..I tried to get them whatever was on the list...as much as i could afford that is...

My daughter never believed in Father Christmas, I wanted her to, but she just never did. Even so we always write letters out together as that is part of the fun of Christmas!

Even though my son isn't even two yet we (my son and I) will write a letter to Santa. Right now it's so I have momentos but later it will be for his own reasone. I would encourage both your neice and your nephewand let them decide.
