Dear Santa – Australia

Australian post issued a postage stamp honoring Santa Claus who brings gifts for children.

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, Australian children write letters to Father Christmas, or Santa Claus, requesting what they would like for Christmas. Santa enjoys reading the letters, often ho-hoing over his correspondents’ requests. On receiving these letters Santa makes a list of the presents he will bring to children throughout the world in time for the Christmas festivities.

The primary inspiration for Santa Claus is the fourth-century Greek Christian bishop St Nicholas, who was famous for giving gifts to the poor.
