A message from Santa for the children of Drogheda

Front Page

Children are being asked to post their letters to Santa in plenty of time. He's extremely busy but he doesn't want any good girls and boys to get left out.

Drogheda Life has received a special letter from Santa which he has asked us to share with the children from Drogheda and the surrounding areas. It reads as follows:

Dear Editor,

Season’s Greetings to everyone from the magical North Pole!

Letters are pouring in from all around the world so I would like to remind all the boys and girls in Drogheda to write and post their letters to me as soon as possible. 

The elves are working hard every day getting the toys and gifts ready in good time for Christmas and they are washing their hands too!

This is what the boys and girls should do:

  • Write their letter to me straight away telling me what they would like me to bring on Christmas Eve
  • Put it in an envelope, seal it and address it to ‘Santa Claus, The North Pole’
  • Write their own name and full postal address (in very clear handwriting) on the top left-hand corner of the front of the envelope
  • Stick a stamp on the top right-hand corner and Post it in your local An Post postbox – that’s important!

It’s that easy!  My friends in An Post are helping me to reply to as many children’s letters as possible before Christmas this year.

And a word to the adults – do get posting your cards and parcels to family and friends straight away!  Christmas is getting very close now and there is snow and ice and other challenges in many places, so please allow time for your post to reach your loved ones before the big day. 

December 9th is the latest date for posting parcels and letters by standard service to the USA, and 13th December for European destinations (18th for cards). More information and other countries can be found at

I hope you all have a very safe and happy Christmas.

Very best wishes
