Yes, Virginia, Santa has his own mailbox at this main post office building in Newark, New Jersey. It was decorated with all things Christmas and some festive golden lighting. I wandered here recently to mail a few Christmas cards to friends abroad. I smiled at seeing this red mailbox with Santa's face painted on it. I wondered how many kids still mail their letters to Santa, bearing their most fervent Christmas wishes.
Did you know that letters addressed to "North Pole" to Santa actually get sent to North Pole, Alaska? It's the home of the world-famous Santa Claus House. Take note, Virginia, Santa's zip code happens to be 99705--and if you visit the Santa Claus House, you can mail a postcard from there bearing the postmark "North Pole, AK!" You better not pout, and this is the big reason why!
To ensure that your child's letter to Santa does not get misdelivered by the reindeer, here is Santa's accurate address:
Santa Claus House, 101 St. Nicholas Drive, North Pole, AK 99705 (USA).
