Santa’s Mailbox

Saturday, December 12th – Thursday, December 17th

Elves are sneaking into Minot’s Scandinavian Heritage Park to drop off a magical mailbox on December 12th, 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 Thursday, December 17th. 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 December 12th and December 17th and Santa will send you a letter back! As long as there is a legible name and address.

Letters dropped off after December 17th at 8:00 pm will NOT receive a letter back.
