Book Description

4 Oct 2010
Every year, the Norwegian postal services receives over 30,000 letters from children and adults from all over the world, addressed to Santa Claus. The Norwegian postal services has never allowed journalists and authors access to these letters until a few years back, when they granted the Norwegian author Birger Sivertsen access to this treasure chest of letters from every corner of the globe. Dear Santa is the book he compiled after reading thousands of those letters. From both children and adults these letters range from funny to sad, sweet to rude, greedy to joyful and hopeful. And after reading some of these letters, maybe you'll be inspired to send one yourself when you are done!

4.0 out of 5 stars DEAR SANTA 29 Nov 2013
Given that we live in what many consider cynical times in which letter writing is a dying art it was really lovely to find that not only do children still believe in Santa Claus (aka Father Christmas, Babbo Natale, Joulupukki, Shengdan Laoren and so on) but they actually take the time to put pen to paper and write to him.

And its not just adults either. There is a whole section of the book devoted to letters sent by adults.

From children Ashby in Australia who wants Santa and their dad to chip in for a Playstation 2 which their mum says is too expensive to Amy from England who wants Santa to define good and not good. From grown-ups Tore Johannes from Norway whose list includes a minor nuclear bomb and a house on the moon to Lara in Italy who wishes for a letter for her 8 year old daughter who has stopped believing in Santa Claus. From William of Hong Kong who asks for a little snow to Monica of Italy who wants to know if Babbo Natale has teeth like regular people. Dear Santa is funny, sad, and often very telling.
