USPS, Shriners Hospitals To Kick Off Operation Santa Letter Writing Workshop

November 29, 2019 13:00 pm · 3 comments

The U.S. Postal Service, in conjunction with Shriners Hospitals for Children – Northern California, is kicking off the 107th year of its iconic Operation Santa program with a letter-writing workshop.

Patients will have an opportunity to write Santa and let him know whether they’ve been naughty or nice!

For more than 100 years, USPS Operation Santa has helped bring joy to kids across the country. It was established by USPS to help families and children have a magical holiday when they otherwise might not.

This year brings some exciting changes to the program – a new website, an expansion of last year’s digital program and a new official postal address for Santa Claus.

Dear Santa,
Two front teeth, Please. Nothing more.
Thank you, S

When I was a little kid I got a letter from Father Christmas (as we call Santa Claus in England). It was postmarked from a small town in the north of Greenland (presumably the nearest post office to the north pole) and was a very nice hand-written letter. Apparently there was a team of old ladies whose business was writing personalised letters to children in thin, scratchy pen. A great business model!

Proof positive, Santa’s helpers are real.
