Blog > It's time to write to Santa!

We really hope you’ve all been good boys and girls this year (and not just the children!), because Santa has most definitely been keeping an eye… Still, if you’d like to plead your case, perhaps a beautifully handwritten letter with some compliments wouldn’t hurt? 😉

We encourage everyone to keep this tradition alive, especially among the little ones. For many, this is their first time writing a letter, and it can be a magical moment of discovery and awe.

To give you a hand in this task, here’s the list of Santa’s addresses around the world:

Post Early!

In many other countries, it’s enough to address your letters to “Santa Claus” (or his name in your language). For instance, in Portugal you mail your letters to “Pai Natal”, and you’ll get a reply.

If Santa’s address for your country isn’t listed above, check with your local post office for more details and let us know in the comments. Happy Holidays, everyone! 🎄

Since 1994 works on Božím Daru Christkind post. Postcards, letters and cards for your loved ones may be sended by mail to Christmas post or individually inserted into special mailbox.

All shipments intended for stamping must be provided with a destination address and postage stamp corresponding to the actual destination.

Postcards and letters from 1/12 - 23/12 are stamped with commemorative Christmas stamp and sent back to the listed address. Every year there is a new casual desires Christmas stamp.

In France, you have 3 possibilities for only 1 destination.

For poets, the address of Santa Claus is:
Père Noël
Rue des Nuages
Pôle Nord

For the traditional, just write:
Père Noël

And for the most pragmatic:
Père Noël
33500 Libourne

Pimpinella, Portugal
In Portugal, we can write to Santa Claus (letter or drawing) and there is no need to put a stamp, only in this ocasion. All letters received from our post offices (CTT) will be answered with a reminder. It will expect this year about 170 thousand letters :)

I have never tried it, but in Italy should be like in Portugal : you can mail a letter addressed to "Babbo Natale" (with an address of your choice, like North Pole, if you wish to add one) and you don't need to put a stamp on it. If you write your own address on the letter you will receive a replay.

cerenyaman, Italy
