NORTH POLE — Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus — and the U.S. Postal Service can help you prove it when Santa replies to your child’s letter — complete with a North Pole postmark.
Here are the steps for your child to get a
letter back from Santa:
your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to:
Santa Claus, North Pole.
when alone, open the envelope and write a personalized response.
the response letter into an envelope and address it to the child.
the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
a First-Class Mail stamp, such as a new Holiday Windows stamp, to the envelope.
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 December 15.
Santa’s helpers at the Postal Service will take care of the rest.
