This is a unique place to visit if you are in the area, at Holiday World, or love Christmas. It is something unique to see.

Take the quick 10 minutes and stop at the post office and write Santa a letter. This town processes thousands of letters in December every year. We wrote a letter on behalf of the grandkids.

It's a post office like any other small town post office, but it's a post office with huge Santa Claus statues and it's in Santa Claus, Indiana, so seriously, that's part of the charm and fun! You can also get a hand stamp from Santa Claus on your postcards or notes to loved ones which truly adds to the appeal.... More

If you have kids, you have to stop by and take a shot with the life size Santa. Unfortunately, the post office itself is just a small town one, however getting a post mark from this office is worth it.

This is labeled as something to see and visit while in Santa Claus. It is just a regular old post office. Nothing to see here. And they only do a special stamp during the holiday season. Nothing to do here but drop off your mail.

Stopped in to get a hand-stamped post mark on postcard for friends. Typical, run-of-the-mill post office. You must request the hand cancellation, otherwise the mail goes in with normal mail and gets regional cancellation. Hand cancellation with Santa Claus, IN made the visit.

Where else can you go and have Santa outside the post office- all year long! Super cute! How can you not love it!

Santa Claus Post Office provides a special stamp designed by local students for you to use during the Christmas Season to post your cards. The staff there is very professional and helpful, and just outside the office you'll see Santa statues and background for nice family pix any time of the year. The Post master is especially pleasant and efficient,... More

The post office was closed when we went to visit, so not much to do, but I assume it was just like any other post office inside. It was neat to see the Santa statue outside. Provides a good photo op.
