“Letters From Santa” Sent to Your Child

When I was a child I sent a letter to Santa. It really came as no surprise that I didn’t get a reply. Don’t get me wrong, there really is a Santa. If you have kids, you get to relive that kind of magic. Maybe, just maybe, it was how I addressed the envelope. It simply said:

To: Santa Claus

From: Danny

Yep, that was pretty much it. At the time I thought that the stamp must’ve blown off somewhere above Canada. Or, maybe, the elves at the North Pole must’ve run out of G.I. Joe action figures. My old one met his fate by losing his head in the, what I know now, as the “Great Sandbox Tragedy of 1976″. Maybe you heard about it. My brother sure did.

Welcome to “Letters From Santa.”

“Letters From Santa” allows a parent, grandparent or any person in a child’s life to mail a letter to their child “From Santa,” postmarked from the North Pole.

Here’s how “Letters From Santa” works:

  1. Write a letter to your child from Santa Claus and sign it “From Santa.”
  2. Insert the letter into an envelope addressed to your child with the return address:
    SANTA, NORTH POLE.
  3. Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
  4. Place the envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address the larger envelope to:
    NORTH POLE POSTMARK
    POSTMASTER
    4141 POSTMARK DR
    ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998
  5. Your letter “From Santa” will be mailed back to your child, postmarked from the North Pole.

“Letters From Santa” must be mailed to the Anchorage, AK, postmaster no later than Dec. 10, 2012. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage will take care of the rest.

If sending a letter to Santa was this easy when I was young it would have saved me many late, wide-eyed nights, pondering the fate of my childhood letter to the North Pole. Who knows? It could still be on the end of a trash-stabbers pokey stick in Saskatchewan.
