It won’t be long until December 25, so here’s how to write to Father Christmas this year – and how you can get a personal reply from the main man in red and white.

Father Christmas has teamed up with the Royal Mail, who will make sure all your letters get to him this year.

He said: “Dear boys and girls, Christmas is a very exciting but busy time for me.

“The elves are making toys, the reindeer are practising their sleigh runs.

“And I'm busy preparing my list of who's been good this year.

“I will be getting my sleigh ready for the long journey on Christmas Eve and in between I will try to reply to as many of you as possible!”

If you are writing to Santa, get your letter posted by Friday 11 December to: Santa/Father Christmas, Santa's Grotto, Reindeerland, XM4 5HQ.

To receive a letter from Santa in Welsh, please write to: Sion Corn, Ogof Sion Corn, Gwlad Y Ceirw, XM4 5HQ.

Please make sure you

• Write Santa's address carefully on the envelope

• Put a stamp on the envelope so it gets to him

• Include your full name and address in your letter

Added Santa: “I'm looking forward to delivering your presents on Christmas Eve.

“Make sure you remember my mince pie and Rudolph's carrot!

"Merry Christmas to you all!”
