Fill out the envelope's address. Request an envelope from your parents and place your letter inside. Write "Santa Claus, North Pole" in large, legible characters on the front of the envelope. The postman will then know where to deliver the letter. When you're finished, seal the envelope. Put your name and the date on the letter.
Now you need to write your letter to Santa. Start by explaining what you want for Christmas. You can also include some suggestions for toys that you think he would like. But remember, kids, the most important thing is that you be honest with Santa. If you lie about what you want or what's wrong with your house, he won't bring you any gifts. He takes pride in being able to read children's minds and knows exactly what they want before they even say anything!
After you explain everything in your letter, sign it and put your address on it so Santa can find you when he visits each house on his list.
Here are some sample letters to help you write your own:
I'm writing to tell you about my family and what we want for Christmas. First, my brother and sister and their families all live in New York, but we still try to have a big Christmas party every year so everyone can be together. This year we're having it at our house.
The North Pole, Santa Claus How to get a letter from the North Pole postmarked: Write a message to Santa and mail it in an envelope addressed to Santa Claus, North Pole. The post office will stamp it and put it on his reindeer-drawn sleigh.
Santa's home address is also the address of his post office box. It is located at the North Pole U.S.A. Post Office, 2000 Polar Circle NW. He receives letters here that are for him personally.
If you write your letter before Christmas Day, it will arrive in time for Santa to read it before he visits your house. If you write after Christmas Day, it will still go to Santa, but it will be delivered after everyone else's letters have been sent out.
How does Santa track who has written him letters? He keeps tabs on who wrote which letters by writing down names of children who have asked him to bring them toys. Then, when the new year begins, he sends each child a note telling them what they did right this past year to earn a gift from Santa. This is called "Santa's list."
Children sometimes ask for things on Santa's list that they shouldn't.

Please have your child's letter signed by someone 18 years or older. If they don't know anyone who is old enough to sign their letter, then someone should be able to write a note on their behalf.

The United States Postal Service responds to letters to Santa in two ways. Letters from Santa allow someone to compose a response to a kid's letter, mail it to the USPS, and have it stamped with a North Pole postmark before it is returned to the child. The other way letters to Santa work is if there is a specific gift requested in the letter. The postal service will create a card with the appropriate gift written on it and send it to the address listed in the letter.
In either case, all letters should be sent to the following address: Christmas Mailbox, P.O. Box 97, Lake City, FL 32543-0997.
