HO HO HO!!
One tradition that I have started with my daughter is the letter to Santa. She wrote her letter a few nights ago...filled with requests for Disney Fairies and My Little Ponies. This was the first year that she was able to write the letter herself which was very exciting. I had to tell her how to spell things (she's 5) but she wrote it all herself.
I downloaded a cute template and this is her letter.
But I put a little twist on it. I write a letter FROM Santa to be delivered to her. If you send the letter from Santa to this address by December 10 in a self addressed stamped envelope, they will send it back to you by Christmas with a postmark from the North Pole!

I'm so excited to see her reaction when she receives the letter this year. She has already started asking "Is that one real"? referring to the Santa in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. So I'm not sure how many more years I can keep the charade going.
