Santa Claus can look forward to receiving something special himself this Christmas – six handcrafted letters from Angelina Jolie and her children from the heart of rural Kent, England.

Jolie and all six of her children – Maddox, 11, Pax, 8, Zahara, 7, Shiloh, 6, and 4-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne – made a special visit to the village of Littlebourne in Kent to send Santa their Christmas letters on Friday. And locals were thrilled to catch a glimpse of the famous family.

"It was so cute. All the children sent messages to Father Christmas and were absolutely beautifully behaved," Littlebourne post office assistant Fiona Lindsay tells PEOPLE. "Just like any other kids in a sweet shop they were excited, but Angelina controlled them perfectly."





"It was lovely," she adds. "They were all very polite. They were just a bunch of gorgeous, happy kids."

Brad Pitt and Jolie have been staying in Kent while he films the final scenes for zombie thriller World War Z.

Staying in a luxury converted barn in the nearby village of Ickham called The Treasury (see photo below), the brood managed to keep a low profile for their entire week-plus stay, enjoying visits to nearby Howletts Wild Animal Park and Waterstones bookshop in Canterbury.

Pitt was also spotted taking Maddox to a screening of Skyfall at the Vue Cinema in Broadstairs – home of English writer Charles Dickens.

The family has since moved on from the area, but their visit has left an indelible mark on the locals in the sleepy English town.

"[Jolie] was so polite and a really nice person," Lindsay says. "I was quite shocked at first but Angelina was so lovely I soon relaxed."



"The children bought a packet of sweets each, plus a few toys and some magazines, and we ended up having a general chat about how they all were and what they were going to eat that night," she adds. "I suggested they pop over to the fish and chip shop across the road as it is a shame to come to England and not have some. I just hoped they liked them!"
