Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's children prepared for Christmas early this year by writing letters to Santa Claus and sending them off last month. 

The couple's brood of six - Maddox, Pax, Zahara, Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne - put pen to paper to detail their wish lists and posted them off in the village of Littlebourne in Kent, England, where their famous father was re-shooting scenes for upcoming blockbuster World War Z

Littlebourne post office assistant Fiona Lindsay tells, "It was so cute. All the children sent messages to Father Christmas and were absolutely beautifully behaved. 

"Just like any other kids in a sweet shop they were excited, but Angelina controlled them perfectly. It was lovely. They were all very polite. They were just a bunch of gorgeous, happy kids."
