With Christmas less than a month away, it's time to really put the U.S. Postal Service to work with the "Letters From Santa" program.

"Letters From Santa" allows a parent, grandparent or anyone involved in a child's life to mail a letter to their child from Santa himself. The letter will be postmarked from the North Pole. Here's how to send a "Letter From Santa":

  • Write a letter to your child from Santa Claus and sign it "From Santa".
  • Insert the letter into an envelope addressed to your child with the return address: Santa, North Pole.
  • Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
  • Place the envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address the larger envelope to:

North Pole Postmark
Postmaster
4141 Postmark Dr
Anchorage, AK 99530-9998

Your "Letter From Santa" will be mailed back to your child, postmarked from the North Pole. The "Letters From Santa" must be mailed no later than December 10. Santa's helpers in Anchorage will take care of the rest for you.
