Blog > Let's write to Santa! (repost)

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.

Letters to Santa

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

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 everyone know in the comments below (with a link, if possible). Happy Holidays! 🎄

For Switzerland:

Until the end of December the Swiss Post will forward all letters addressed "to Santa" no matter if the address is fictional or random.

For more details please check this press release by the Swiss Post: https://www.post.ch/en/about-us/company/media/press-releases/2014/swiss-post-gives-santa-claus-a-helping-hand

I know it's from 2014 but I've checked and it's still up to date, the number of letters has even increased since then ;)

Hope this helps and happy holidays!

P.S. From what I've read they also reply to emails sent from outside of Switzerland as long as it's written in one of the three national languages (German, French or Italian) or in English. Might be worth giving a try for those people whos national post office doesn't offer this.

Sfander, Canada
Canada's address for Santa Claus does reply to everyone who writes...all countries.
He never wants to disappoint the children...but these letters should be sent early enough to have time to send a reply before Christmas.

Here is Hong Kong's Post Office Address:

<香港中環康樂廣場二號 香港郵政總部 聖誕老人收>
(緊記寫上回郵地址)

對於寄信給聖誕老人的截止日期,發言人直言並沒有限定截止日期,也曾有市民過了12月25日繼續寄信去。「我們12月頭就會開始回信,早寄來我們會早回。」發言人續指,市民如果想得到聖誕老人的回覆,記得在信裏面寫上回郵地址,而並不需要預備回郵信封的,寄出時要貼足郵費才能成功!

This is my first time posting to "Santa" !

I only would like to share with you ;-). I find this generation for letters from Russian Ded Moroz, write letters to my friends' kids who live in another countries and send it and envelope pic by e-mail. Also I added colourpages as a small gift. Now the need only print it and put to mailbox. I hope kids will be surprise and happy ;-) to get this surprise.

A book with "Letters from Father Christmas" by J.R.R Tolkien (the one from the Hobbit). Every December an envelope bearing a stamp from the North Pole, would arrive for J.R.R. Tolkien's children. It would be a letter in strange spidery handwriting and a beautiful colour drawing. They were from Father Christmas, telling wonderful tales of life at the North Pole. And North Polar Bear messing things up. A hilarious read and very funny drawings.

When my children were smaller we did not only write to the German Weihnachtsmann in Himmelpfort, but once tried the one in Finland. He didn't answer at Christmas time. He just wrote a nice letter sitting by a lake in summer. So funny!

In Spain there is no Santa’s addresses. But in Navarra (Basque Country) in North of Spain there is Olintzero, is a character in Basque culture and tradition, charcoal by profession.

ANY ADDRESSES FOR INDIA?

zwergi, Germany
I always find it a bit arrogant of grown up people writing to the Christmas post offices to get back a letter. It is mostly a team of volunteers working there who can hardly manage to answer all the letters from children. Adults trying to collect special postmarks etc. by expecting answers cost those teams an awful lot of time that they would need to write to those kids who still really believe in Santa, maybe had a very tough year and should get so much more attention.

Appelsiina, Finland
If your country does not have an address for Santa you can send your letters to another country - though there is often the question of languages.

It is possible to get an answer from the Finnish Santa in 13 languages (Finnish, Swedish, English, Japanese, German, Dutch, French, Spanish, Italian, Chinese, Russian, Polish and Portugese) but unfortunately it costs 7,90 €. That is probably because here the elves have a strong union - or the Finnish postal services are expensive.

I was very much delighted to hear of the other Santa's post offices around the world.

I wonder if we Postcrossers could do something for those who would love to receive a letter from Santa but do not have an address in their country. Any ideas?

In the Netherlands we normally give presents at Saint Nicholas' Day, not at Christmas. Children write wish lists to Saint Nicholas, though usually not by mail. But the rumble about Santa is growing here too. Here in Maastricht is at the moment - the whole month of December - a Christmas Market, including a House of Santa Claus, where you can visit him!

Sfander, Canada
If you write to Santa in Canada he replies in all languages that he was written in, including braille. He's a jolly old fellow and tries very hard to please the kids.

In Brazil, children write to Papai Noel (Santa Claus). There’s no need to have an address: you just put Santa Claus’ name on it and deliver it at any post office.
Adult people go to the post offices and pick out some little letters to patronize them and give the children a gift (as like it was from Papai Noel). Post offices make free delivery of Santa's gifts.
