Sharing the Spirit of Santa: The Next Level of the Santa Letter
Remember writing out your Santa letter in hopes he would get your wish list and one of your wants would be under the tree or even better, Santa would write back? Whether you want your child to experience Christmas via "snail mail" or through "e-mail" with a video, you've got options to keep the spirit alive. And even better, by just believing you can also help others in need. 
Sharing the Spirit of Santa: The Next Level of the Santa Letter
Letters from the North Pole - Kids Will Truly Believe When Santa Writes Back The U.S. Postal Service is helping keep the enchantment of Santa Claus alive with its “Letters From Santa” program. “Letters From Santa” allows you 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!
The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
E-mailed Video by North Pole Videos offers personalized videos from Santa. Each video includes your desired name, their age and a few special requests like "Be a good boy" from Santa. The videos are free to make and view for 48 hours. If you choose to buy the video to keep all year it’s only $3.99 and you can enjoy 10 additional videos to remind kids to be good to stay on the nice list all year round.
