How to Write a Letter to Santa Claus and Receive a Response

Looking to get a letter to Santa Claus in time for Christmas?  Not only can you get a letter to the North Pole, you can also get a reply from the Big Guy,  too!  See how you can make a child’s wish with the USPS.

With Christmas just three weeks away, now is an important time to get wish lists up to Santa.  If you have or know a child that’s looking to reach the man in red this season, not only can you mail the letter out in the post office, you can also get a response from Santa Claus!

The USPS has a wonderful system, allowing children to hear from Santa through the mail – even responding to their actual letters.  Now, if you have a child reading along with you – avert their eyes as there is some “magic” to reaching Santa.


Three envelopes, one slightly larger than the other  two.

Paper and pens.

Postage for two envelopes.


  1. Have the child write to Santa.
  2. Child fills out envelope one- To: Santa Claus, North Pole.
  3. Open (or don’t seal) envelope one and retrieve the letter to Santa.  You can disguise your handwriting, or have a friend respond and either: a) write on the child’s letter or b) write on a blank sheet of paper.  Don’t forget to sign – From Santa!
  4. Place the letter(s) in envelope two, addressed to the child and seal.  For the return address, write Santa Claus, North Pole. Place a First-Class postage on envelope two.
  5. Place envelope two into the larger envelope three.  Seal envelope three and attach postage.  Write this address on envelope three:

ANCHORAGE AK 99530-9998

6.  Mail envelope three!

Letters MUST be received at the AK. address by no later than December 15, 2015.  The USPS will mail back the letter you addressed to the child in envelope two, with the “response from Santa.”  The envelope will even have a North Pole post mark! How cool is that?!

Share this with anyone you know that has a child, looking to write to Santa.
