Santa’s Mailbox

Wednesday, November 23, 2022 – Monday, December 12, 2022

Elves are sneaking into Minot’s Scandinavian Heritage Park and downtown Minot to drop off a magical mailbox on November 23rd, so children can mail their letters to Santa! The elves will pack up the letters and take them home to the North Pole for Santa to read on Monday, December 12th. Don’t forget to include names and a return address to ensure the elves know where to send Santa’s response!

Place your letter in Santa’s Mailbox between November 23rd and December 12th and Santa will send you a letter back! As long as there is a legible name and address.

Letters dropped off after December 12th at 8:00 pm will NOT receive a letter back.
