Team Up with VnA’s Gingy House in Suisun, CA!

Good Day Sacramento visited VnA’s Gingy House in Suisun, CA today! Thank you for the shout to Legendary Letters too! We had so much fun teaming up with them this year during the pandemic, that we’ve decided to continue next year too. We will donate up to 200 free Santa replies in 2021 instead of the regular 100 replies that we’ve done for the past 7 years.

Hopefully Christmas next year will be back to normal and children can again write their letters to Santa Claus at our booth at the City of Fairfield’s Tree Lighting the first Friday in December. Kids will also be able to drop off letters to Santa in downtown Fairfield at Legendary Letters and VnA’s Gingy House on Shoveller Drive in Suisun up until December 18th. For those who live outside Solano County, you can send letters to Santa through the mail any time throughout the year using this address:

Santa Claus

Merry Christmas from Elf Stacy, Elf James, Elf Hunter, and Elf Logan!

Send your letters to us for a chance at getting free magical mail!

Each year at Christmas, we have had a booth at the city of Fairfield’s tree lighting where people can write letters to Santa Claus. The first 100 letters we receive there get a response from Santa and all go to the Macy’s Believe Program to benefit the Make a Wish Foundation. This year due to the pandemic, it is unlikely that we will have the booth like we usually do. Instead, we’d like to invite you to send us your letters to Santa and anyone else you or your children would like to write to! We have gotten letters to the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, Batman, Harry Potter, Minerva McGonagall, Cupid, and many more. We will randomly select 100 people to receive a response and we will still give all letters to the Make a Wish Foundation at the end of the year so they can collect $1 for each from Macy’s.

Please address your letters like so:

(Magical Being of your choice)
c/o Legendary Letters
707 Kentucky Street
Fairfield, CA 94533

P.S. Don’t forget to include a return address or the magical being(s) won’t know where to write you back. 🙂

First Ever Legendary Letters Writing Contest

I’ve been tinkering with the idea of hosting a letter writing contest for some time, and I’ve decided to go for it! I’ve sent thousands of letters out over the past 22 years (every single one written by me). I still love what I do, but I can’t help thinking it would be great to have input from other people. What would it be like to have a resident of Ireland write as a leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day, a WWII veteran write as Uncle Sam for Independence Day, or an Environmentalist write as Mother Nature for Mother’s Day? I can imagine being these things, but I haven’t really lived it the way they have. I also wondered how writers from all generations would have different points of view and memories about the holidays? I really hope we get submissions from Millennials, Gen Xers, Baby Boomers, and the Greatest Generation as well as those still in school.

I’ve posted all the details on the Contest Page and hope you’ll check it out. There are 11 categories of characters and holidays to choose from. Anyone 13 and up may enter, and the deadline is December 15, 2018. Prizes will be awarded on December 20, 2018 just in time for the holidays. Your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to write a letter to a fictional child named Jessie Jones as a magical being.

Thank you so much to the following sites who have added us to their list of contests:
