If you've got kids, the United States Postal Service is doing their part to keep the magic of Santa Claus alive with its “Letters from Santa” program. “Letters from Santa” allows any person in a child’s life to mail a letter to the child “from Santa,” postmarked from the North Pole. If you'd like to have a letter mailed to your child, the United States Postal Service says that there are a few things you'll need to do.

First, have your child write a letter to Santa. Then, write a response letter to your child from Santa and sign it "From, Santa." Next, insert both letters into an envelope, put your child's address on the envelope and then for the return address write: "Santa, North Pole." Put a first-class stamp on the envelope and put the envelope into a larger envelope, put the appropriate postage on it and address the larger envelope to:

North Pole Postmark
Postmaster
4141 Postmark Dr
Anchorage AK 99530-9998

Your letter "from Santa" will be mailed back to your child, postmarked from the North Pole. How exciting! "Letters from Santa" need to be mailed out no later than this Saturday, December 7 so it has time to reach Anchorage. Once they receive your stuff, Santa's helpers in Anchorage will take care of the rest.
