The Christmas season is upon us, which means it’s time to write our beloved letters to Santa Claus. Wondering what to do with the letters once your kids write them? There are several options!
It will make the experience much more meaningful to find a mailbox around town. It will be even better when a return envelope turns up in YOUR mailbox, from the one and only, Santa Claus! Check out the list below for a mailbox near you.
