Other Ways to Write to Santa
Santa has mailboxes all around Indianapolis, but he also accepts letters from all over the world! Here are two ways you can send a letter to Santa outside of Indiana.
Get a Letter from Santa Postmarked from the North Pole
The U.S. Postal Service can help you prove that Santa is real by sending your child a letter from the North Pole — complete with the North Pole Postmark! The Greetings from the North Pole Post Office program adds to the excitement of Christmas and is ideal for getting kids interested in letter writing, stamps and penmanship.
To get a letter postmarked from the North Pole:
- Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
- Write a personalized response to your child’s letter and sign it “From Santa.”
- Insert both letters into an envelope, and address it to the child.
- Add the return address: SANTA, NORTH POLE, to the envelope.
- Ensure a First-Class Mail stamp is affixed to the envelope.
- Place the complete envelope into a larger envelope, with appropriate postage, and address it to:
North Pole Postmark
4141 Postmark Dr.
Anchorage, AK 99530-9998
Letters should be sent by Dec. 1, 2023. Santa’s helpers in Anchorage, AK, will take care of the rest!
