With Christmas only three weeks from today, you may want to remind the kids to write their wish list and mail to Santa at the North pole.
If you hurry and get it in the mail, you can ensure that letter gets a personal response from Old St. Nick himself. All you have to do is mail the letter to Anchorage and the Post Office will take care of getting it postmarked from the North Pole to send back to your kids.
Santa has helpers working everywhere. Yes, even at the Anchorage post office! Here’s what his helpers there need parents to do to get Santa’s letter back to your child, straight from the North Pole.
Have your little one write a letter to Santa and address the envelope to “Santa Claus, North Pole.” Since Santa is very busy preparing for his biggest day of the year, his helpers can do the following:
- Santa's helpers (hint :-) ) can help write a personalized response from Santa and/or his helpers to your child.
- Santa's helpers can put the response in an envelope addressed to your child with a First-Class Mail stamp and the return address: “Santa, North Pole.”
- Put the completed envelope with the response into a bigger envelope with the correct postage and send it ASAP to:
North Pole Postmark Postmaster
4141 Postmark Drive
Anchorage, AK 99530-9998
The USPS recommends making the response from Santa to your kids as personal as possible, so be sure to include details about things they’ve done this year. And your letter needs to be received by the Anchorage postmaster by December 15 for them to send back the letter with the North Pole postmark. So to make this magic happen, you’d better hustle.
