News from the Canada Post outlet at the North Pole is that Santa’s Chief postal elf and her crew of 9,000 elves have their pens, pencils and mailbags ready to receive letters from children all over the world.
The postal elves will help Santa answer more than one million letters in more than 30 different languages, including Braille.
Since 1982, Santa has received more than 21.8 million letters.
According to Santa’s Chief postal elf, Holly T. Elf, there are three golden rules in sending a letter to Santa:
1 – Make sure you include your return address!
While Santa knows where you live, his postal elves need your address to deliver Santa’s letter to your home. After all, not everyone has access to Rudolph!
2 – Send your letter soon! Already letters are arriving from across the world and Santa is busy reading them every night with Mrs. Claus.
He encourages you to send your letter soon to ensure he’ll have enough time to answer each and every one of them.
Letters must be mailed by Dec.17 to allow enough time for travel to the North Pole and back!
3 – Remember Santa’s address: When your letter is ready, drop it in a mailbox anywhere in Canada and the postal elves will make sure it gets to the big man quickly.
Santa has a special arrangement with the post office and a stamp is not required. But please remember any other letter or card being sent to Grandma or anyone else needs a stamp. Santa’s address is:
