Letters from Santa

Did you believe in Santa as a child? I did till I was about 10 or 11.  Do your children/grandchildren believe now? If so the USPS has got the best way ( in my opinion) to continue or start, a tradition of getting a letter back from Santa. Personally my son is not a huge fan of going to see Santa in large crowded places and neither are we so this is a great alternative!

First you have your kid/s write a letter to Santa stating what they would like and such. Then YOU write a response posing as Santa. Place the child’s letter in a larger envelope with the address:

North Pole Postmark Postmaster

4141 Postmark drive

Anchorage, AK 99530-9998

Inside the envelope you place Santa’s response with a self addressed and stamped envelope with your address and child’s name. The post office in Alaska will stamp the envelope indicating it came from the North Pole and mail it back. How cool is that!? All letters must be received by December 15 in order to get back to you before Christmas.

USPS official instructions  and sample letters for “Santa” to write.

Your kids/grandkids will be so excited to get a personal letter from Santa and it will help make the season that much more magical!  God Bless and Merry Christmas!
