Did you write your letter to Santa?

You'd better hurry, if you haven't already.

You don't know the address? Come on, everybody knows that. Just mark your envelope with "Santa Clause, North Pole". According to this story, even letters without stamps get through.

However, there is a proper way to address a letter to Santa. It appears North Pole is a town in Alaska, and Santa's Elves are volunteering town folks and the US Postal Service. The USPS has released guidelines for parents, who want their children's letters to Santa get replied.
Parents are encouraged to work with their children while they write letters to Santa so they can pick up a few tips when they later help craft Santa's reply. Once the reply is written, "Santa's response" should be placed in a stamped envelope addressed to the child. This envelope should then be placed in a larger, properly stamped, First-Class Mail or Priority Mail envelope and mailed to:

North Pole Christmas Cancellation
5400 Mail Trail
Fairbanks, AK 99709-9998

That ensures you'll get the Santa North Pole postmark.
