24 Days of Christmas Books: Letters from Father Christmas

letters from father christmas j r r tolkienIt seems only appropriate that I talk about J.R.R. Tolkien's Letters From Father Christmas on the same day as they release the first trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I didn't mean to plan it this way, it just happened. A happy coincidence. Serendipity.

Tolkien clearly had one heck of an imagination and he had no qualms about sharing it with this children. His children would send letters to Father Christmas and in the Tolkien household, Father Christmas would write them back. Sometimes they were fun little notes. Other times they contained adventure stories. And at one point Father Christmas even faced an attack from goblins.

Cute and whimsical it's a must for Tolkien fans. And maybe it will inspire you to write your own letters from Father Christmas.
