History of Letters from Santa

U.S. kids often mail Santa Claus letters, but who started this?
In the 19th century, Santa Claus was more strict, and parents often promoted the idea of telling Santa about their children’s naughty behavior. The Smithsonian reports that some parents began sending Santa Claus notes to their children at this time.

From Thomas Nast’s Harper’s Weekly, Christmas cartoons and the 1823 poem “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” the American image of Santa Claus evolved in the 1800s. Nast’s Civil War-era images of Santa inspired his red suit and white beard. Nast’s cartoons also illustrate early Christmas mail delivery.

In 1871 Nast drew Santa sorting mail. “Letters from disobedient children’s parents” piled high. Nast drew the first U.S. mail post-stamped to Santa Claus in Harper’s Weekly 1879. A boy writes a letter to “Santa Claus North Pole” in this Harper’s illustration.

On Boxing Day 1874, kids left Santa letters at the Richmond Post Office. One letter requested a “not-so-big wagon, four wheels, pop-crackers, and Mother Hubbard.”The USPS returned Santa Claus’ letters or sent them to the Dead Letter Office.

 Around 1900, charities and organizations began answering letters from poor children because the Post Office at the time was anti-Santa. A 1906 Times article blasted the uncaring post office and their “red-tape-bound officialdom. The Dead Letter Office team hated Christmas and the additional work it created for them, which was increasing as the years went on. Next year, the Postmaster General allowed his staff to distribute the letters, but charities had to evaluate if the children needed support. After complaints, the Postmaster General canceled the stipend.In 1911, his successor authorized “Santa Claus” letters to be issued to “responsible institutions or people” for “philanthropic purposes.” Renewed in 1913, Johnny Carson read disadvantaged children’s notes in the 1960s. By 1989, Santa got a ZIP code and USPS lets parents respond to children’s letters to Santa.

Final Verdict

The procedure for obtaining a letter delivered personally by Santa Claus at the North Pole couldn’t be much more straightforward. To begin, you will be required to select one of the four different sorts of letters that are accessible, and the contents of each letter will determine your decision. Next, we’ll need some information from you to customize the letter and make it more appealing to your child in particular. This information will be used to make the letter.
The name of the kid, their gender, their date and place of birth, a present they may have expressly requested, and the name of the city or town where they will be spending Christmas Eve will all be included in this information.
