The United States Postal Service "Letters from Santa" program is a fun way to keep the Christmas spirit alive, and also get a keepsake for your kid.
According to the USPS website, here is how you can get your kid a letter from Santa:
-Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
-Later, when alone, open the envelope and 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 to the envelope, such as one of the new holiday stamps.
-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
“Letters from Santa” must be received by the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than Dec. 8.
