Where to Send Your Letter to Santa..and Get a Response!

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And the Postal Service™ can help you prove it when Santa replies to your child’s letter to Santa — complete with the North Pole Postmark with the Letters from Santa program. Just make sure you send your letter to Santa by December 8!

Here’s where to send your letter and get a response from Santa:

1. Have the child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.

2. Write a personalized response to the child’s letter and sign it “From Santa.”

3. Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to the child.

4. Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.

5. Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.

6. Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:NORTH POLE POSTMARK

Tips:

  • To save paper, write on the back of your child’s letter. If you keep them together, your child will also be able to recall what he or she wrote.
  • When responding as Santa, make the response as personal as possible by highlighting your child’s accomplishments over the past year. For example, helping around the house, receiving good grades in a particular subject at school or participating in community service activities.
  • This is a great activity for Thanksgiving that the whole family can enjoy, including parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and other caregivers.
