H0H 0H0 – Santa’s postal code is no joke

It's easy to write a letter to Santa Claus – just mail your wish list in care of the North Pole

Santa’s postal code is no joke

Wish lists, pictures and drawings, funny jokes and favourite games – these are a few of the things kids put in their letters to Santa.

Every year, Jolly Old Saint Nick receives more than a million letters from children  in Canada and around the world.

The amazing thing is, according to Canada Post, every letter is read – and every letter is answered.

More than 6,000 Canada Post volunteers – staff and retirees – help Santa out. Letters are answered in the language the letter was written, including Braille.

Address letters to: Santa Claus, North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0. No postage required.  They should be mailed no later than Dec. 16 to receive a reply.

Be sure to include your return address for his response.
