USPS making sure letters to Santa arrive at North Pole

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) This is a holiday spoiler alert for parents! Don t let your kids read on or it will spoil the holiday surprise!

The United States Postal Service is offering up some advice for sending a letter to Santa this holiday season.

It even has a step-by-step procedure to make sure your child gets a response from the man himself.

Not only will Santa Claus open the letter, but he will postmark it from the North Pole and send back a response.

Here are the steps to take from the USPS:

  • Have your child write a letter to Santa and seal it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.
  • Tell your child that you’ll place a stamp on the envelope and mail it to St. Nick for him or her.
  • Later, when alone, open the envelope, read the letter and write Santa’s response on the back of the child’s letter. Have Santa write: “It’s important to be green and save paper. That’s why I’m writing on the back.”
  • When responding as Santa, reference your child’s accomplishments not included in his or her letter, i.e. Santa is so proud that you volunteered to help ____, or Santa is really impressed with the great job you’re doing in school especially with math, etc. Sign it Santa Claus with a P.S. to get to bed early Christmas Eve.
  • Place the letter into a new envelope addressed to the child at his or her home. Be sure to include: Santa Claus, North Pole, as the return address on the envelope.
  • Don’t forget to apply a First-Class stamp such as a recently issued Santa or Rudolph Forever stamp.

Sure, the steps involve the purchase of stamps and a bit of planning, but it takes a little help to get a hold of Santa himself during this busy time of year.
