Letter to Santa

Just a post office but it is part of a nice strip mall with a Christmas store. Take time to look around town and see how many Santa's you can find.

There are a row of these Santa statues in this mall. It's a great place to do photo ops with the kids. Each Santa is posed differently.

We bought a Santa Claus post card and mailed it from here. Nice statue of the jolly old elf out front.

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.

Can't go to Santa Claus, In without visiting the post office. This office takes in thousands of letters at Christmas and volunteers answer them all. The most magical post office ever.

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.
