How To Get A Letter From Santa Postmarked From The North Pole!

How To Get A Letter From Santa Postmarked From The North Pole: It's simple to do, you can customize as much as you want, and it will only cost you a stamp!

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:

letter-from-santa North Pole Christmas Cancellation
ATTN: Postmaster
5400 Mail Trail

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!

    This is so cool! My niece and nephews will get a kick out of these! :)
  4. Belle's Butterfly says:
    Such a good idea. I will have to keep this for when Belle is older. I wish the Santa line worked this year. She just looks at me like Santa???
  5. blueviolet says:
    I did the North Pole postmark thing a few times, and it really is pretty darn cool!
  6. Very cool!! I might have to try that this year. Thanks for sharing!
  7. I can't remember the site now but last year, Santa sent Hayden a video about how he got his letter. It was awesome.

    Man, I wish I could remember the site.
  8. now i hate that my 'puter was wiped clean. i had a site bookmarked that you fill out q's about your kid and you get a personalized video of santa talking to your kid for their to watch on your computer!
  9. Oh, I vividly remember how desperate to please Santa I was in Decembers past.
  10. Mrs.Mayhem says:
    This is a super cool idea. Thanks for sharing all of the information about it!
  11. This is the first year that Katie is curious about Santa. She talks about him constantly and asks a million questions.

    This is such a perfect idea for her! Now I just need to figure out what Santa eats for breakfast, what color his car is, and if he has a little brother (our three most recent questions!).

    And if you can offer me any advice on how to purposely NOT buy one of the items on her list, I'd appreciate it. I'm trying to avoid buying Elmo winter boots. Sigh.
  12. That's such fun to do... We did it when my girls were little ones and it's the perfect bribe (I mean, memory-jogger!) for them and YOU during the holidays... Thanks for sharing the info, again. Come visit when you can...
  13. We've got something similar in Canada (which is the country Santa ACTUALLY lives in ya know ;) Canada Post has thousands of volunteers that handle the program and make sure letters get sent to kids "From Santa".

    I'm pretty sure my 4yo will be writing a letter so I should probably get it sent off soon :)
  14. Hot chicks, LOL. Totally reminds me of this...
  15. I don't have a letter trick, but we have my brothers on 'notice' that if we call and say Santa, please speak to Big Kiss - they know to go all Ho HO HO and crap.

    My in laws sent my boys a letter in September from Santa saying the elves had a great vacation but are back to making toys. Mouths Agape!
  16. What a cute picture. My kids like the concept of Santa bringing them shit, but they won't go near him.
  17. What a great idea!! I had no idea you could do that. However, it won't be as fun seeing as how J-boy let me know that Santa Claus is "you and dad"!! They grow up too fast!!
  18. says:
    Ummm...apparently I am lazy. I order a personalized letter that comes with info about what bratchild needs to work on, what she's good at and what she wants for Christmas. It comes with reindeer food, a photo and a bell.
  19. I'll have to try this. I tell my kids they have to go sit on Santa's lap to tell him what they want. :)
  20. Sarah at The Stroller Ballet says:
    That is an amazing thing to know about!! I need to remember this for when peanut gets a little bit older!!
  21. Santa lives in Alaska?!!! I thought it was the north pole! I've been lied to all these years.
  22. I love, love the whole Santa gig! I even have most of my decorations in the Santa theme...and I have been known to use "The Man" as a bribe now and then.

    Tater and his bombshells? Can't wait to hear about them!
  23. wanderingmenace says:
    Behaving for Santa....
    What a task that was!
    I love that your three year old wants two hot chicks. All boy over there huh?
  24. Booyah's Momma says:
    Too funny! I am anxiously awaiting Wednesday, and the continuation of the two hot chick story. I have a feeling this will be a goody.
  25. I work at and am really excited to let you know that we just launched our iPhone and iPad apps which let kids write letters to Santa from their mobile device and get a response back from Santa through their digital mailbox. You (as Santa) can enter into a year-round conversation with you kids via their mailbox - reminding them to be nice and less naughty ;) Very very fun.
  26. I am very excited about this
