Every December from 1920-1943, JRR Tolkien's children received a letter from Father Christmas, addressed to them in spidery handwriting, bearing a stamp from the North Pole. Tolkien, as Father Christmas, wrote the letters, accompanied by humorous illustrations. In his 1926 letter to John, Michael and Christopher Tolkien, he wrote that the North Polar Bear ate 'quite a lot of my Christmas chocolates'. He also noted that the reindeer broke loose and were 'tossing presents up in the air'.Amanda Haagen-Kisz
