Sending Letters to Santa Claus The tradition of sending letters to Santa Claus has grown and grown in popularity over the years. And the method of sending letters has changed considerably due to technology, advertising and the modern world. The old tradition of sending letters to Santa Claus, or Father Christmas as he is referred to in the UK, did not require a Santa Claus mailing address.
Santa Claus Mailing Address - the old methods of communication So why didn't the children from previous generations need a Santa Claus mailing address? In times gone by children would write their letters to Santa Claus and they would be put them on to an open fire. The letters would turn into smoke, which went up the chimney, and magically found their way to Santa Claus and his home in the North Pole! How times change! Central heating systems, different types of accommodation, the fall in the production of coal and the introduction of smoke-free zones and homes without chimneys have all played their part! How else could a child contact Santa Claus? They would want a Santa Claus Mailing Address! In Mexico and some other Latin American countries sometimes children wrap their Santa letters to a small helium balloon, releasing them into the air so Santa Claus magically receives them.
Santa Claus Mailing Address So our changing world demanded a new method of communicating with Santa Claus, or Father Christmas! Kids started writing letters and dropping into a post box. Volunteer staff in Postal Services all around the world started to answer the letters! The children (via their parents!) started to ask for a Santa Claus Mailing address, just make sure their letters would be sent to the right place!
