A mum has hit out at her children’s nursery after they sent the kids home with a letter from Father Christmas that noted the elves were following Covid-19 restrictions.
The woman posted on Mumsnet to ask whether she was overreacting about the letter.
She said: "My (children) came home from nursery with this. (Would I be unreasonable) not to read it to them? Just why?!"
The mum posted a photo of the note on the parenting website.
It read: "It has been very busy here at the North Pole, during this year 2021 we are still in the worldwide pandemic.
"The elves have been washing their hands and wearing their masks and working around the clock to make sure the toys are ready to deliver to all the good boys and girls.
"Rudolph and his fellow reindeer are having regular Covid 19 tests and getting ready for the long journey ahead, and I'm sitting by the fireplace writing this letter and enjoying a lovely mince pie."
It went on: “I am writing to let you know that you have been very good at washing your hands and keeping the germs away, you have also been well behaved this year and have made it onto my good child list.”
"I am very proud of you, and as you have been so amazing, I'd like to get you something extra-special for Christmas this year.
"I'll be visiting your home very soon, keep up the good work. Merry Christmas, from Santa Claus."
Some mums said they’d be putting the note “straight in the recycling bin” while others believed it was “well-intentioned.”

One person said: “Yeah, it’s a bit bleak but I think well-intentioned. I’d just bin it and crack on with the Christmas you’d planned."
While another added: "Maybe they are just trying to reassure children that despite all the upheaval, Santa will still be around, I think it comes from a good place but they have overthought it.”
The original poster said: "Agree it was well-intentioned and they are usually great!
"But this has massively missed the mark I feel and made me feel quite sad."
