GREENUP, Ky. (WOWK) – The United States Postal Service (USPS) confirms that all letters to Santa were successfully shipped up to the North Pole.

Every year the USPS receives letters addressed to the North Pole or Santa Claus. The postal service says once they receive the letters they sort and transfer them up to the North Pole.

The postmaster at the Greenup post office, Teri Thomas tells us that during the holiday season it is very important that these letters are delivered to Santa Claus on time.

We get quite a few santa letters and we forward those on to the North Pole, so Santa can read them. Children writing their letters to Santa, we know how important that is to the children and we want to make sure Santa gets all of his letters.


The USPS tells us that they are proud to deliver the letters to Santa every year to help make each child’s Christmas special.
