Write a Letter to Santa and Receive a Letter from the North Pole!

Calling all Santa believers, it’s that time of the year again and if you’re similar to many families out there with little ones- you’re answering several questions a day about Santa and the North Pole.

“Am I on the good list or the naughty list?”

“Does Santa make toys all year long?”

“How does Santa deliver presents to all the kids in one night?”

“If I write Santa a letter, will he write me back?”

Some of these questions may have stumped you for a moment or two, but the last one you can answer confidently when responding, “Yes, Santa will write you back.”

After stumbling upon an article on Huffington Post that was written by Ed Mazza, titled “Here’s How to Get a Letter from Santa Claus with a North Pole Postmark”, it was exciting to know that the holiday spirit could be taken a step further.

Below are the simple steps that my daughter and I followed from Huffington Post’s Article to get a letter from Santa this year!

1.     Have your child write a letter to Santa and allow them to place it in an envelope addressed to “Santa Claus, The North Pole.”

2.     Then, secretly open the letter and write a response on the back of your child’s letter pretending to be Santa. This is a great opportunity to highlight what you are so proud of your child for!

3.     You will then place the letter in an envelope that is addressed to your child, with a return address of “Santa Clause, The North Pole.” Make sure to include postage. 

4.     Finally, you will place this letter in an envelope that is addressed to

North Pole Postmark


4141 Postmark Drive

Anchorage, AK 99530-9998

Make sure your letter arrives before December 15th so Santa’s helpers at the USPS has enough time to respond before Christmas.
