When a work order gets mixed up in the elves' workshop, some interesting products result. Brown giraffe spots are painted onto candy canes and giraffes are painted with red stripes. Over the years I've had many parents find and paint white candy canes with brown spots to have hanging on the tree Christmas morning. In the letter Santa alludes to this possibility... How fun is that?
When you are creating your p.s. please let me know details that would make a difference to your child...gender of pets, if yours is a single or two-parent family, etc...these make the letters much more authentic! Children also love reference to a possible gift they may find on Christmas morning, or the mention of how well they did in a choral performance or sporting event.
