Nothing helps make the magic of Santa come to life like a letter from the big guy himself postmarked from the North Pole. Whether you have an Elf on the Shelf who has been reporting back to the jolly old elf or your little ones are awaiting a reply to their letter to Santa, you can have a letter sent to your Christmas angels postmarked North Pole via the United States Post Office.
Because even the post office believes in Santa (haven’t you ever seen Miracle on 34th Street?) it offers this service for free. (Well, you do have to pay postage…)
Here’s how “Letters From Santa” works:
- Write a letter to your child from Santa Claus and sign it “From Santa.”
- Insert the letter into an envelope addressed to your child with the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE.
- Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
- Place the envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address the larger envelope to: NORTH POLE POSTMARK
4141 POSTMARK DR
ANCHORAGE, AK 99530-9998
- Your letter “From Santa” will be mailed back to your child, postmarked from the North Pole.
“Letters From Santa” must be mailed to the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than December 10. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage will take care of the rest.
