Each year, the United States Postal Service receives thousands of letters to Santa and for those wanting to share the joy of Christmas, registration to adopt is now open.
USPS Operation Santa is the beloved 111-year-old program run by the U.S. Postal Service. Letters are accepted from everywhere in the country and can be adopted by anyone who has successfully registered.
The letters travel to Santa’s U.S. satellite workshop, where they are opened and reviewed, personal information is redacted, and the letters are uploaded to the USPSOperationSanta.com website. USPS Operation Santa provides an online channel where people can safely and securely help children and families have a magical holiday when they otherwise might not — one letter to Santa at a time.
For those wanting to write to Santa, you have until Dec. 11 and adopters have until Dec. 18 to adopt a letter and ship your gift to ensure holiday delivery.
USPS Operation Santa is not a guaranteed gift-giving program. It relies solely on the generosity of strangers. It allows individuals to adopt letters written to Santa and send thoughtful, heartfelt gifts anonymously.
