Santa Letters Are a Centuries Old Tradition

The history behind writing Santa letters is about as mystical as Santa himself. After much research there really is little information as to how the tradition of writing Santa a letter started, but what was found was one single reference to a letter written from a little girl in the 1200's to the real St. Nicholas. In the letter she wrote "St. Nicholas patron of good children, I kneel for you to intercede. Hear my voice through the clouds And this night give me some toys. I want most of all a playhouse with some flowers and little birds. It seems that the tradition of writing to Santa to ask for gifts really didn't take hold until the late 1800's but has been a mainstay in children's and their parents lives ever since.

And as the tradition goes on, little boys and girls continue to sit down with paper and pencil, or crayon, and write to Santa telling him how well they have behaved throughout the year, detailing the good things they have done, and why they deserve to be bestowed with the gifts that they desire.
