Santa Claus postmark now available

By Herald Staff

SANTA CLAUS — The special Santa Claus holiday postmark is now available at the Santa Claus Post Office. This famous small-town post office is the only one in the world with the Santa Claus name and receives over 400,000 pieces of mail in December.

The Santa Claus Post Office has offered the special postmark every holiday season since 1983. Each year, a local high school student designs the special picture postmark for use on Christmas cards and other mail from the Santa Claus Post Office during the holiday season.

The 2020 postmark is available only in Santa Claus, Indiana, on working days between Dec. 1 and Dec. 24.

Santa Claus, Indiana, will celebrate the holiday season with special events throughout town in December. Traditional events include Santa Claus Land of Lights, Christmas Lake Village Festival of Lights, Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire and more. New for 2020, Christmas-themed fireworks will light up the sky on Dec. 12. Find event details at
