Is your child planning to mail a letter to Santa?
The U.S. Postal Service can make sure your child receives a response – complete with a North Pole postmark.
Here are the steps for your child to get a letter back from Santa:
Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
Later, when alone, open the envelope and write a personalized response.
Insert the response letter into an envelope and address it to the child.
Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
Affix a First-Class Mail stamp, such as a new Christmas Carols Forever stamp to the envelope.
Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope – preferably a Priority Mail Flat Rate envelope – with appropriate postage and address it to:
North Pole Postmark
4141 Postmark Drive
Anchorage, AK 99530-9998
“Letters from Santa” must be received by the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than Dec. 15.
Santa’s helpers at the Postal Service will take care of the rest.
