Children’s letters to the Christ child

Letters sent by children from all over the world to the Christ child are forwarded to the Christkindl Christmas post office where they are answered by standardised letters.

In order to make it easier for the Christ child to answer their letters, children in Austria are requested to enclose a self-addressed, stamped envelope and children writing from outside Austria a self-addressed, unstamped envelope and an international reply coupon with their letters.
