Some places to send a letter to Santa Claus include the United States Post Office postmaster in Anchorage, Alaska, the Santa Claus House at North Pole, Alaska, and the Santa Claus Museum in Santa Claus, Indiana. Children who send letters by a specified date receive a reply from Santa Claus.
The U.S. Post Office offers a Letters From Santa program, in which families mail their children's letter to the anchorage location and receive a reply letter. A North Pole postmark is included on the reply envelope the child receives. The Santa Claus House is located in downtown North Pole; letters sent from this location leave the North Pole Post Office.
