Is everyone knows, this is certainly Santa’s busiest period ? and it’s tough to the big guy to resolve every Christmas letter himself.
Thus if your children want a letter from Santa Claus (or you have to have one yourself!), you might need to take matters in your own hands.
The United States Postal Service has some of Santa’s helpers standing by at its Anchorage post office, ready to return letter from santa claus complete with a “NORTH POLE” postmark.
Here’s the way it works: Have your son or daughter write a letter to Santa. Let him or her use it into an envelope addressed simply “SANTA CLAUS, THE NORTH POLE.”
Later, secretly open the letter and write a response from Santa. USPS suggests writing it on the back of your child’s letter so they can easily see the initial in addition to Santa’s response.
“When responding as Santa, make your response as personal as you can by highlighting your child’s accomplishments during the last year,” USPS suggests. “For example, helping at home, receiving good grades in a particular subject at school or engaging in community service activities.”
Then, input it in an envelope addressed in your child with “SANTA CLAUS, THE NORTH POLE” as being the return address.
Add the right postage ? USPS suggests 98dexnpky of its new holiday-themed stamps ? then input it in the larger envelope, also with all the necessary postage.
USPS says letters must arrive by Dec. 15 for Santa’s helpers to obtain the response back to your kids over time for Christmas.
The agency estimates that it’ll handle some 16 billion letters, cards and packages this holiday period. The busiest mailing day is expected being Dec. 19, along with the busiest expected delivery day will probably be Dec. 22, with 30 million packages delivered on that day alone.
