Little girl gives letter for Santa to her postie and his response goes viral | The Sun

A LITTLE girl went viral after her mum filmed her reaction while opening a letter from Santa.

Alanah, seven, addressed a handwritten note to Father Christmas asking for arts and crafts, pamper gifts and trainers.

Her mum Danika, 33, from Norwich, gave it to their local postman so he could send it to Lapland.

Just two days later, postie Jonny returned with an envelope to make Alanah's day.

He said: “I've been a postie for 16 and a half years and I love my job. 

“Alanah waited at the door holding a letter addressed to Santa at the North Pole.

“The look of excitement just pulled on my heartstrings. I just couldn't let the letter be destroyed knowing she wouldn't receive a reply!"

Jonny, 41, said he started looking for Santa letter templates online so he could reply.

He added: "On Monday, I printed it, popped it in an envelope and took it with me so I could post it back to Alanah on the day.

“I was totally surprised by the reaction, I was just doing my job!”

The letter read: "Dearest Alanah, Merry Christmas. It is almost time for me to pack up my sleigh and hit the skis with Rudolph and all the other reindeers.

“I have been checking my nice list and both Mrs Claus and I are happy to see you on the list this year. 

“Remember to go to bed early on Christmas Eve, no peeking!
