My kids LOVE to write letters to Santa Claus, and what could be more fun than actually receiving a reply??!!! It’s absolutely one of our family’s favorite traditions! Seeing my kids’ faces, when they open the mailbox and see a letter them them? From Santa? It’s the best things ever!
It’s really easy to do, and I’ve got all the info you need!
I’m sharing some great info to share with you on sending letters to Santa, where to postmark them, and how to get a reply!!
Santa Claus, Indiana responds to children’s letters, and he museum director sent this important information:
Merry Christmas! I am the Director at the Santa Claus Museum & Village and one of Santa’s Elves. I just wanted to encourage everyone to get those letters in by December 20 – the earlier, the better! The Elves get pretty overwhelmed close to the deadline. We do try to respond to every child who sends a letter, though sometimes there are problems if the return address is not legible. So make sure there is a clear return address listed. And these letters are all free, though we certainly welcome donations! We’re a small non-profit with volunteer Elves and every little bit helps. If you have any questions or need more information, check out our website at http://santaclausmuseum.org/letters-to-santa/. There is also a link for “print at home” letters if you would prefer to do that rather than mail a letter to us. You can also give us a call at 812-544-2434.
