Do you remember being a kid and getting a letter from Santa? My mom got those send-in-your-kid’s-name-and-what-they-want-and-we’ll-send-him/her-a-“personalized”-form-letter-from-Santa. Not that it mattered to us; we waited for those letters for weeks after we sent a letter to Santa. Wanted to make sure that Santa knew that we were being good and what loot we expected him to bring us. Now you can get a real letter from Santa with a North Pole postmark!
This year, Ethan asked if he could write a letter to Santa. He wants a red skateboard. He also wants two bombshells (aka two hot chicks), but you’ll have to come back on Wednesday to get that story. Anyways, I’m pretty sure he won’t include the bombshells request in his letter, but I’m positive he will include the skateboard. And he said he better get back a letter from Santa. Talk about pressure.
I’m not sure if you know this or not, but you can get a letter postmarked from the North Pole for your child! It’s really a cool thing to do, and you’re kids will be floored when they see “North Pole” on the envelope. The best part about it? The letter from Santa will be written by you…that means you can get as creative and personalized as you want!
How To Get A Letter From Santa
Postmarked By The North Pole
1. Have your child (or help your child) write a letter to Santa. Make sure to include not only what your child wants, but also encourage him to ask questions and include thoughts to Santa.
2. Write a letter from Santa for return to your child. You can check out this free Santa’s Stationary download and use that. Include answers to the questions that your child addressed in his letter. Also make sure to write about something important in your child’s life that was not mentioned in the letter…something that Santa would only know if he was watching.
3. Put your letter from Santa (the one to be sent back to your child) in a a stamped envelope with your child’s name and address on it. Write “North Pole” as the return address. Place that envelope in a larger envelope with the child’s letter to Santa in it.
4. Send the large envelope (with the envelope that will be delivered back to your child inside of it) to this address:
Fairbanks, Alaska 99709-9999
5. As long as your letter is mailed and received in Alaska by December 15th, your child will get the letter from Santa with a real North Pole postmark on it!
