It’s that time of year when millions of letters make their way to the Scout Elves and Santa at the North Pole, filled with wishes, messages, hopes and more! When it comes time to send your family’s letters to Santa, you may wonder: what is Santa’s address, how can I make sure he receives my letter or how can I reach Santa at the North Pole?
For ages, there have been many ways to relay messages to Santa. From snail mail to emails and even age-old traditions—like in Scotland, where kids shout their messages up the chimney to Santa—the possibilities are almost endless. To help you find the best way to relay your Christmas messages to the North Pole, Santa’s Scout Elves have compiled three tried and true ways to make sure Santa always receives your letter!
