Santa’s Mailbox Returns To North Carolina City
It’s a tradition as old as the modern-day Christmas. I mean growing up, who hasn’t written a letter to Santa. Now, the trick of course was making sure you had the right address, postage and got it in the mail in time for Santa to get your message. Well, all that worry is taken away this year by the Statesville City Hall that once again will play host to Santa’s Magic Mailbox.
Beginning on November 27, all you have to do, Mom and Dad, is get the kids to the Statesville City Hall lobby at 227 S. Center St. Here’s what makes the mailbox magic. It will express your child’s letter to Santa-no stamp required! As an added bonus, if your little one’s letter includes his/her name and address, a personal response from St. Nicholas will be send to YOUR mailbox.
Santa’s Magic Mailbox isn’t the only sign of holiday cheer in Statesville. According to the Statesville Record and Landmark, inside and out of City Hall will be decorated to the max for a magical evening on December 8 (6-8pm). It’ll be a “wow” kind of holiday experience as you’ll be able to take pictures with Santa beside the town’s 15-foot Christmas tree (and the nutcrackers guarding the front of City Hall). There will also be food and drinks, arts & crafts for the kiddos and tours of Statesville’s City Hall conducted by “Ghosts of Christmas Past.”
And here’s the best part, like Santa’s Magic Mailbox, it’s free!
Here’s the important part. To make absolutely sure that Santa gets to letters in time, be sure to drop them off at City Hall or mail them to Santa at P.O. Box 1111, Statesville, NC 28687 by Dec. 8. And yes, Santa’s Magic Mailbox will work electronically as well. Send your email version of the letter to email@example.com. Oh, and this is cool. Why not compose the Christmas letter on special Santa stationary? Also, free. And it’s there for the download at statesvillenc.net/santa.
