Santa’s off on his sleigh!

Sadly Santa’s not getting post before Christmas – but you can always write next year!

The last day to write to Santa was the 7th Dec


Christmas is Santa’s busy time, and right now he’s preparing for his busiest journey yet, loading presents onto the sleigh and practising squeezing down chimneys! That means he doesn’t have time to write replies now. But if you want to write to Santa next year, here’s how you can do it:

Use Santa’s official address

To make sure your message gets to Santa at the North Pole, you'll need to send it to his official address which we will confirm next year.


Include your name and address

Please be sure to include your full name and address in your letter so Santa knows where to send his reply.

Add a stamp 

Don’t forget to stick a stamp on your letter or card. You can add an extra festive touch with this year’s Christmas stamps.

We’ll issue a new date when you’ll need to send your letter by to be certain that Santa will get back to you. Make sure you do it nice and early!

Plus, here are the recommended Christmas last posting dates for all UK and overseas mail.
