Letters to Santa

Parents – has your child ever wanted to write a letter to Santa Claus?

Maybe you’ve helped them do it in the past but they’ve always wondered where it went and how it got to the North Pole. Now at ChristmasVille we’ve been given special permission to set up an official mailbox JUST FOR LETTERS TO SANTA! Since our Head Gnome, Grant, has a special connection with the Big Guy in Red, mail from this mailbox goes DIRECTLY TO THE NORTH POLE via special ChristmasVille Priority Mail.

You can download the form below, help your child fill it out, and then bring them with their letter to drop it in the special red and white mailbox pictured on the right.

The mailbox is located on Main Street in Downtown Rock Hill, SC right beside the information kiosk at the crosswalk and directly across from the Main Street Children’s Museum at 133 East Main Street. Start a tradition with your child this year!
