Does your little one have a BIG wish this year? Drop off your letter to Santa at The Galleria!
From December 9th to 24th, your kids can create their own wishlists and drop them off at the the Letters to Santa stations. Each station will be stocked with one-time use sealed envelopes, crayons and everything your child needs to get their letters sent off to the Big Man in Red.
Every day, a lucky child will be selected and have their wish granted prior to the Big Day!
You will find the Letters to Santa stations at two locations at The Galleria: Central Kitchens on Level 3, beside the Winter Village and near Caboodle on Level 2.
