Receive a Santa Letter with a North Pole Postmark!


As you prepare to trim the tree and hang your stockings with care, don’t forget to put a little holiday cheer in the air. Now you can help a child in your life experience the magic of Christmas with the help of the U.S. Postal Service’s Letters from Santa program. For a limited time, kids can receive a personalized letter from “Santa” that includes a special “North Pole” postmark.

Santa Letter with a North Pole Postmark


Here’s how it works:

1. Write a personalized letter to a child from Santa Claus and sign it “From Santa.”

2. Insert the letter into an envelope and address it to the child.

3. Add the return address: “SANTA, NORTH POLE” to the envelope.

4. Ensure a First-Class stamp is affixed to the envelope.

5. Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:


   4141 POSTMARK DR.

   ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998

6. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage, AK, will take care of the rest!


All “Letters from Santa” must be mailed to the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than Dec. 10, 2013

    This is such a neat idea! My grandson would love to get a letter from Santa! I hope they do this next year when he will understand more and be a little older. Reply
