Letters From Santa
Now that Thanksgiving is over, and Christmas is in full swing, here is a fun activity to do with your kids that still believe in Santa! .....I might even send a letter with my wish list to Santa Claus, too! =) Just think about how excited your kids will be when they receive a letter back from Santa Claus! Just follow the directions below from the Postal Service! Keep in mind that letters must be received by the Anchorage, AK, Postmaster no later than December 15!
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! The Letters from Santa program adds to the excitement of Christmas and is ideal for interesting youngsters in letter writing, stamps and penmanship.
Have the child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
Write a personalized response to the child's letter and sign it "From Santa." See sample responses from Santa.
Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to the child.
Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:
NORTH POLE POSTMARK POSTMASTER 4141 POSTMARK DR ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
Letters from Santa must be received by the Anchorage, AK, Postmaster no later than December 15. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage, AK, will take care of the rest!
Be sure to share the experience on social media using #LettersFromSanta.
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.
