The United States Postal Service has released the mailing address for Santa.  So if your child was hoping for a response from Santa here's how it can happen.

Have your kid(s) write a letter to Santa.  Once finished seal it in an envelope addressed to:

Santa Clause
North Pole

Then have your kid put a stamp on the envelope and then tell them you'll mail it for them.

Later, when the kids aren't around, open the envelope, read their letter and write Santa's response on the back of their letter.

Don't forgets to reference some of the good things your child has done during the year in the letter, i.e., Santa is so proud that you volunteered to help ____, or Santa is really impressed with the great job you’re doing in school — especially with math, etc. Sign it Santa Claus with a P.S. to get to bed early Christmas Eve.

Then place the letter in a new envelope and address it to your child at your address. Include the return address as:
Santa Clause
North Pole

Then put a first class stamp on the envelope.

Then place the stamped envelope into a larger envelope or a Priority Mail envelope with the correct postage and send it to:

North Pole Holiday Postmark
Postmaster
4141 Postmark Dr
Anchorage AK 99530-9998

Letters from Santa must be received by the Anchorage, AK, Postmaster no later than December 15, 2014.

The Anchorage Postmaster will open the envelope, remove Santa’s letter addressed to your child, apply the North Pole postmark and mail it back home.

When Santa’s letter arrives, then be ready to see the sparkle in your child's eye when they read their letter from Santa.
