I’m so excited about Christmas! My excitement doesn’t come from the presents (those are nice too) — I love all of the magic! People just seem nicer and happier, there are fun and exciting things to do, traditions to keep going, so much to look forward to! Here’s where you’ll find a Santa mailbox near me so your kids can mail a letter to Santa Claus.
Santa Mailboxes are all over Central Indiana
One of our favorite magical moments comes from the simple joy of sending a letter to Santa Claus. We carefully craft our letters one night (new reader/writers in our family.) The next evening, we deposit our letters into the Santa mailbox closest to our home. The magic continues! A week or two later, the kids receive a letter in the mail from Santa!
