It may be July, but for many, Christmas can't get here soon enough. If you or your kids want to get an early jump on your wish list this year, you don't have to wait until December to let Santa Claus know what you want!

The Santa Claus, Indiana post office will gladly accept letters to good ol' St. Nick anytime of the year, and make sure he gets them in plenty of time for Christmas. All you have to do is grab a piece of paper, and something to write with, and tell Santa what it is you want, or that you can't wait for Christmas, or just check in and see how he's doing and what he's up to this time of year. Then stick it in an envelope, slap a stamp on it, and drop in the mail to the following address:

Santa Claus
PO Box 1
Santa Claus, IN 47579

If you'd like something a little more formal, the Santa Claus Museum in Santa Claus, Indiana has a printable letter you can customize and download from their website.

Make sure the return address on your envelope is legible so Santa knows who he responding to. Every letter received before December 21st will get a written response from Santa and the Elves!
