Prove Saint Nick is real with USPS letters from Santa

Santa can become real for your child all thanks to a little help from the United States Postal Service.

It is all a part of its letters from Santa program that includes an authentic letter straight from the North Pole.

The goal: help parents prove Santa exists with a real response to their child's Christmas letter.

Here is how to make the magic happen:

  • Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
  • Then later, when the Santa helper in your home is all alone, write a personalized response.
  • Insert the response letter into an envelope and address it to the child.
  • Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
  • Affix a First-Class Mail stamp, such as a new Holiday Windows stamp, to the envelope.
  • Place 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

But the clock is ticking.

“Letters from Santa” must be received by the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than Dec. 15. 

From there, Santa’s helpers at the Postal Service will take care of the rest.

The post office encourage the Santa helpers in your home to make the response as personal as possible by highlighting the 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.
