Need to brighten your child’s day or restore their hope in ‘ol Saint Nick? How about a FREE letter from Santa!?
Try this neat little trick to get your kids a personalized, handwritten letter from the North Pole, from Santa himself this year! Of course you’ll want to first have your child “write” a letter to Santa so you can pick up a few tips when you later craft Santa’s reply.
It’s important to note that the letter “from” Santa is really a letter written to your child by you, but since it is postmarked from the North Pole, It’ll seem just like the real thing!
Write a note out to your child from “Santa”. It may help to have someone else write the note since your child may recognize your handwriting.
Put that note in an envelope addressed to your child with a return address of “The North Pole”. Place a regular postage stamp on that envelope. Seal the envelope.
Put the sealed envelope inside another stamped envelope. Make sure this envelope isn’t bulging, or it might not make it there. If you can, it is a good idea to make the inner envelope a 4×6 size envelope for example and the outer envelope a 5×7 size for example.
Address the larger (outer) envelope to the mailing address below:
North Pole Christmas Cancellation
5400 Mail Trail
Fairbanks, AK 99709-9998
The postmark stamp on the envelope with the letter from Santa Claus inside (the outer envelope gets thrown away after it’s opened) that gets mailed back to your home will say “North Pole”. Slam dunk! How cool is that?!
Send out this letter no later than December 15th to receive your letter from Santa before Christmas.
There you go, 2 stamps, less than $1!
We did this last year with great success and I plan to do it this year again.
