A message from the most famous post office

Mrs. Claus is helping Santa with the more than one million letters he gets each year.

The following letter was delivered to the special postal elves at Canada Post:

Dear boys and girls, ladies and gents:

It’s me, Mrs. Claus. As you know, this is a busy time of year up here at the North Pole and we’re very excited that Christmas is less than four weeks away! Already the letters to Santa are piling up at the North Pole post office.  With all the ways to get in touch with Santa, Santa’s mailbox and inbox are filling up fast!

Well this year, I’ve decided to step in and take part in the fun. I’ll be helping Santa reply to the letters this year. In fact, tonight Santa and I plan to nestle in front of the fire with a warm cup of milk and cookies and reply to a batch of letters. Writing a letter is so much fun. I know you like it too – we’ve been getting letters since July from boys and girls from all over the world. You know, of course, that Santa is fluent in all languages, so whatever the language you want to write to him in, he can reply!

So, send your letters along to Santa. The address is simple: Santa Claus. North Pole. And don’t forget our special postal code: H0H 0H0! Make sure you mail them by December 17. Our special postal elves at Canada Post will make sure they get to us, and we’ll answer every single one of them – more than 20 million in the past 30 years!

I’ll be sending more letters and posting them on our special website at canadapost.ca/santa. You can also email your letter to Santa, watch videos of Santa reading letters and play fun holiday games on the site.

The countdown to Christmas is on! Until next time, be happy!

Mrs. Claus
