Every year, Santa Claus receives hundreds of thousands of letters from all around the world, addressed to Santa's post office at the Finnish Arctic Circle. Since the 1990s, customers have also had the opportunity to order letters from Santa. Santa always keeps up with the times, and this Christmas Itella Posti Oy offers a new service: you can order a letter from Santa using your smartphone!
You can get the Santa's Letter phone application free of charge from App Store, Android Market or Ovi Store. Ordering a letter from Santa costs €7. The letter can be paid for with Visa and Euro/MasterCard credit cards.
With the ordering application, the customer's phone gets into the Christmas spirit with photos from Santa's post office, snowflakes and Christmas music.
Santa's letter is sent to the recipient equipped with special Christmas stamps and the polar circle's post office postmark. Santa, of course, also signs the letter. The content of the letter is a surprise.
The available language options include Finnish, Swedish, English, German, Japanese, Chinese, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian and Dutch.
Santa's Letter is illustrated by Finnish artist Minna Immonen.
Order your letter by Friday, December 9, 2011. The letters will be delivered to recipients by Christmas.
