LETTERS TO SANTA
MAILBOX HAS ARRIVED!
Hey kids- the North Pole Mailbox has again appeared in Belgium! Santa Claus sent down a special mail box that sends your letters straight up to his workshop at the North Pole. Be sure to get your letters in before December 14th so he has enough time to write back to you before he has to start packing up for the Big Night! No postage necessary, as this mail travels by the power of Christmas magic.
