There are two ways you can get a real letterf rom Santa for your kids this Christmas.
The first way is with a little help from the U.S. Postal Service.
1) Write your Letter from Santa, make sure to make it look like a real letter from Santa. Use special stationery, a unique style of handwriting, or get someone else to write it for you so your child does not recognize your handwriting.
2) Seal this letter from Santa in an envelope and address it to your child. Make certain the child’s address is accurate. In the return address area of the envelope (upper left) write “Letter from Santa”, and “North Pole” just below that. Be sure to add a stamp. Use a Christmas stamp if you have one. Check with your post office.
3) Attach a sticky note (Post-It Note) to the envelope which reads, “Postmaster, Please postmark and place in outgoing mail.”
4) Place the Letter from Santa in a larger envelope with your correct return address. Address this larger envelope, “Postmaster, North Pole, Alaska 99705”. Be sure to use proper postage since this is a bigger envelope. Ask your U.S. Postal worker or just add another first class stamp. Mail the letter before December 10 if you want your child to receive it before Christmas.
