Christmas is such a magical time of year – between the holiday treats, twinkling lights and festive decor, there are dozens of ways to celebrate and create new Christmas Traditions.
One of our favorite family traditions is writing a letter to Santa and mailing it off to the North Pole.
Each year, soon after Thanksgiving passes, my kids sit down and write letters to Santa, telling him all about their good behavior and sending a small list of gift requests.
This year, however, is going to be extra special, because I just discovered that the USPS has a program where they will send children a return letter from Santa, with a North Pole postmark. How fun is that??
You can get the instructions to get your Letter from Santa Here plus download the Letter from Santa Template.
Where to Send your Letter to Santa
Once your kids have their Letter to Santa all filled in, it’s time to send it off to the North Pole. Since Santa is so well-known, his address is very simple:
This is the address that you will send your Letter to Santa if you are not interested in getting a return letter.
(If you do want a return letter, you can find the instructions HERE.)
Don’t forget that all letters to Santa need a stamp!
The USPS also has a program called Operation Santa. This program was designed as a way for the public to answer the overwhelming amount of mail addressed to Santa. It is especially designed for those who would otherwise not have a magical Christmas.
Your child’s letter can be sent to the address below and the letter will be posted online. Businesses and individuals will then have the opportunity to “adopt” your child and send a gift your child has requested.
If you are interested in participating in Operation Santa, send your letters to this address:
Make sure that:
- You write the correct address for Santa
- Your child’s full name and the return address is written clearly in the upper left corner
- First-class postage must be attached
- Be as specific as possible with the listed items (name of book, or special characters, etc…
- If wishing for clothes or shoes make sure to include sizes needed
- Make sure your letter is received no later than December 15th in order to be made available online. (The sooner the better, online adoptions begin December 4th)
Fill-In Letter to Santa Template
Not all kids will want to mail their letter to Santa. Instead, they may want to give Santa their list when they see him in person. Or, if the letter does not include a wish list, they may want to leave it out for Santa on Christmas Eve. You will find a template below that is perfect for a letter just for Santa.
Writing the perfect letter is not always easy. That’s why I created these templates that have prompts for children to fill-in so they can provide Santa with all the right information.
There are 18 different designs to choose from with a few different variations of the fill-in prompts.
