Mail Santa Claus a Wish List, Get a Reply from North Pole

Thanks to a very special U.S. Postal Service program, Santa Claus will reply to children who mail him their Christmas wish lists this holiday season.

Every year, millions of children sit down to make a wish list for Santa, hoping he will make all of their Christmas dreams come true.

But what if Santa actually wrote back? The United States Postal Service is now accepting "Letters From Santa," a program that allows any person to play Santa by sending a letter signed by Saint Nick to any child.

According to a Postal Service news release, "The 'Letters From Santa' program helps parents fulfill the dreams of their own children."

Instructions to send a letter from Santa:

  1. Write a letter to your child from Santa Claus and sign it "From Santa." Put the letter in an envelope addressed to your child with the return address SANTA, NORTH POLE.
  2. Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
  3. Place the envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address the larger envelope to:
    4141 POSTMARK DR
    ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
  4. Your letter “from Santa” will be mailed back to your child, postmarked from the North Pole.
  5. “Letters From Santa” must be mailed to the Anchorage, AK postmaster by no later than Dec. 10. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage will take care of the rest.

In Suwanee, letters to Santa can be dropped off at the local Postal Service.

TELL US: Do your children or children in your family plan on writing a letter to Santa this year?
