Christmas is surely the best time of the year for everyone; children enjoy it even more. It is this fun and festive period that has a special magical aura to it. The songs, the gifts, the festivities, talks of fairies, elves, and of course, children’s favorite, Santa Claus – all add to the magic of Christmas.

Children love Santa Claus and believe in him without any doubt. As parents we know, they are going to believe in this fairy tale only for the first decade of their life; until reason kicks in. However, it is joyous to feed their wild imagination and make them acknowledge that Santa really exists. Moreover, it is a chance for us to revive the magical times of our youth.

1. Making Secret Santa Real

The best means to increase your little one’s belief in St. Nicolas is by becoming their ‘Secret Santa’ and doing his job. The notion behind being a secret Santa is to make your child understand that Santa is real and gives gifts to good children on Christmas. However, if you intend to become the ‘Secret Santa’ for your kid this year, we are sure you are going to require some extra assistance. To make your kids really believe that Santa is real, you may need to send them some secret presents. If you really want to conserve the magic of Christmas for your children, you need to devise a foolproof game plan. Mentioned below are some recommendations that might help.

2. Letters from Santa

Getting a personalized letter from Santa Claus is always a big and exciting occasion for little ones. It is an easy way for parents to keep kids fascinated!

You can create some extra magic this Christmas with a tiny bit of help from us! Letters from Santa offer extraordinary, personalized, and beautiful “Pole-Marked” letters that will arrive right at your door. You can simply just input your child’s information to us after selecting your letter type and content and just wait & watch the magic unfold.

The kids will be determined to stay on Santa’s ‘Nice List. They will surely be on their best behavior, so give some extra motivation to your kids to behave well! When you order a personalized letter, just let us know what your child’s been up to. Including these details in your kid’s letter adds to the genuineness and originality of their letter, and it’s a wonderful way to remind kids how significant it is to be good to everyone.

Kids will be very happy in anticipation of receiving a letter from Santa Claus himself! Santa will send your kid a personalized letter with his official mail stamp and a real North Pole postmark — and it comes with an assurance to be on Santa’s good list!

You can choose from four of our unique letter types that Santa can mail to your kid. You can choose from Santa with Sleigh, Santa Mail, Letter from Santa, and Santa Writing a Letter. You can also customize a letter, especially for your kid.

To add to this extra magical gift, you can select goodies like customized mugs, ornaments, aprons, and much more.

3. Academic Presents

Gifts don’t have to be entertainment items necessarily. Sometimes it is better to motivate and encourage the children with an educational gift. Instances of secret Santa academic presents include reading books, watercolor, coloring books, painting books, painting brushes, play dough, and pens. These gifts can provoke and stimulate creativity in youngsters. Encourage them to get more imaginative and creative this vacation by selecting any of these Santa Claus gifts.

Other lovely examples of educational gifts involve read-along poem books and picture books. A good piece of advice to pick out an excellent academic gift for a child is to ask the teacher about the child’s interest to guide you on the specific gift to get your child on Christmas. This can help you get your little ones their most loved and beneficial possession.

4. Christmas-Themed Items

Christmas-themed gifts serve as great options for kids. You can give your kid a Christmas Bible storybook, any object with a Christmas message, or a quotation written on it. Your kid’s favorite candy is also a tremendous secret Santa gift – kids love candy, that’s for sure.

Dear Santa USPS Operation Santa Documentary

Each year, the U.S. Postal Service conducts ‘Operation Santa’, which is a program that helps under-privileged youngsters receive Christmas gifts when they might otherwise receive little or nothing. Parents who are going through difficult financial times are encouraged to make their children aware of this program, so that it might become possible for their children to receive gifts which the parents simply cannot afford. This program has worked very effectively in the past, and it’s a wonderful way of ensuring that good children receive a little Christmas cheer, instead of being disappointed on that special day.

On December 4, 2020, there will be a world premiere of a documentary about this program, entitled ‘Dear Santa’. There will be several purposes served by airing the program, apart from its purely informative value. First of all, it will alert alert youngsters to the fact that they can write in a letter which is intended to reach Santa Claus, and which may result in them receiving a gift for Christmas.

On the other end of the spectrum, it will deliver an opportunity for adults to read some of the digital letters which have been sent in already to Santa, and then adopt a child or the child’s family, by purchasing gifts for those individuals. USPS spokeswoman Kim Frum says that, “The 108-year-old program that fulfills wish lists for needy families and kids couldn’t come at a more critical juncture. 2020 has seen its share of challenges affecting individuals and families in so many ways. COVID-19 has resulted in job losses, temporary unemployment, and sadly the loss of family and friends. Couple that with devastation from national disasters, and it’s easy to see why USPS’ Operation Santa program is more important than ever.” 

Impact of COVID-19

What Ms. Frum is referring to is the fact that 2020 has been a particularly difficult year for many people in the country, from the standpoint of having either intermittent employment or none at all. The various restrictions and lockdowns which have been in effect for much of the year have caused a number of small businesses to shut their doors, or to limit commerce with consumers.

Many families are still suffering from the effects of less than regular employment, and family budgets may not allow for gift-giving during the holidays. Also because of the coronavirus pandemic, all in-person letter adoptions have been canceled this year to limit the exposure of individuals for catching the disease.

The Operation Santa program

This program was actually begun in 1912 when Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock designated a single mailbox where all letters to Santa could be pigeonholed. At that time, he authorized postal workers to open these letters and respond to them according to their level of interest. Normally, when letters come in now they are posted online, which is a practice begun in 2017.

In that year, a pilot program was instituted where letters from the New York City area were accepted and posted online. In the following year, six more cities were brought into the program, and in 2019, the count of city participation was up to 17. For 2020, all cities in the country are now eligible, and that means children from any state can write letters to Santa and have a reasonable expectation of receiving a response.

Adults wishing to adopt a child or family for the Operation Santa program must register with the program and pass an ID verification test in order to participate. This year, letters will be posted online starting on December 5, and that’s when adults can choose a particular child or family to adopt. Letters should contain specific ideas for gifts that the child wants. If the gifts are in the category of clothing, children should be writing in their sizes and preferred color schemes. If the gifts are in the category of toys, books, or other objects, children are encouraged to be as specific as possible when writing the letters.

How to participate

Parents should encourage their children to write letters to Santa specifying what kind of gift they would like to receive for Christmas, and put that letter in an envelope addressed to Santa Claus, 123 Elf Road, North Pole, 88888. Letters will be accepted through December 15, and a letter adoption process will be carried out in a digital manner.

To find out more information on the program you can visit the website set up by the USPS for this purpose, which is https://www.uspsoperationsanta.com/. Last year, more than 11,000 letters were adopted in a very limited program, and that number is expected to soar much higher, since the program has now been opened up to the entire country.

In situations where Secret Santas cannot be verified by the identification they submitted, it will still be possible for them to encourage a friend or an entire team to adopt a family or child. You can find out what the guidelines are for shipping gifts around the country from the USPS, because some special requirements have been emplaced during the time of COVID-19 for package shipping. 

You can also find out much more information about the program in general, and about the history of Operation Santa, by watching Dear Santa on its premiere date of December 4. This will undoubtedly be a wonderful way for you to spread some cheer during the holidays, and to make at least one individual enjoy the season much more than they otherwise would have.
