Indy Santa Mailboxes | Mail a Letter to Santa in Indianapolis

I’m so excited for 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!

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!

Santa Claus Indiana Holiday Postmark

“Patrons from all over the world request the Santa Claus holiday postmark. Some drive into town to personally hand cancel their holiday mail with the famous picture postmark and others request the special postmark by mail,” says Postmaster Cheryl Bailey. “The famous Santa Claus postmark is a long-standing tradition for the town and it’s always fun to see the unique artwork each year.”

She asks anyone interested in getting the special cancellation on their holiday mail to follow these guidelines.

  • Apply postage to cards or letters before bringing or mailing them to the post office;

  • The picture postmark is available on working days between December 1 and 24;
  • The picture postmark must be requested by the postal customer;
  • To ensure a good postmark imprint, do not enclose large or bulky items in your holiday mail (Ex: reindeer food, snowflakes, glitter, stickers, etc.);
