How to Write a Letter to Santa Claus and Get an Answer

By Edited May 27, 2014 2 2

Santa is real and you can prove it to your children. Follow these easy steps to write and receive back a real letter from Santa Claus.
 

Instructions for Writing Your Christmas Letter

First, get your nice paper and envelope out because the Jolly Old Elf only writes good children who write him first.  Remember the toy workshop and reindeer farm  is a busy place.

RESEARCH WHERE TO SEND YOUR SANTA LETTER

First, we must find out exactly where Santa lives. Every child knows that he lives at the North Pole right? Well, where is the toy workshop exactly? Get out a map or a globe and look up the location of the North Pole. Your map with show that obviously your letter needs to reach Santa at his home in the far North of Canada.

Santa Claus gets over 1 million letters each year, so Canada Post reserved a special postal code for Santa using Canada Post's addressing system. That postal code is H0H 0H0 (makes sense right?)  As proof of his Canadian citizenship, consider that postal services the world over recoginize the H0H 0H0 postal code for the top of the world workshop.

WRITE YOUR SANTA LETTER

Get your writing paper and pen and write up a nice letter to your man Saint Nick. Use nice paper, maybe green or red, or adorned with Christmas images because you know that the elves who will process your letter live for Christmas.

Make sure you put your own Name and Address at the top of the letter so Santa will know where to write you back.

Explain what you would like for Christmas.

Of course Santa Claus knows if you have been naughty or nice (but I'm sure it does not hurt to remind Santa how nice you have been to your parents, siblings and friends).

HAVE YOUR SANTA LETTER CHECKED

Santa makes his list and checks it twice. You should get your list checked twice too. Show the letter to your parents so they can check it for you.

ADDRESS AND MAIL YOUR LETTER
 
Address your letter to Saint Nick's World Headquarters at:
 
Santa Claus World Headquarters
North Pole, Nunavut Territory,
Canada H0H 0H0

WAIT FOR YOUR RETURN LETTER 

Santa gets a lot of mail, so send your letter early to get a reply before Christmas comes. Soon you should get a nice letter back from Santa. Be sure to watch your mailbox!

A note for parents:  Canada Post has a long running volunteer elf run program that helps answer children's letters. There is no cost to benefit beyond the cost of a stamp. Writing letters with your kids is a wonderful family activity that builds family ties. It jump starts the Christmas spirit early for the family and gives the children something to watch the mail for over a number of weeks.
