It Indeed Does Exist - Santa's Post Office

I have always heard and wondered if I do can send a letter to "Ho Ho Santa Claus" with my "Wish List" when I was a kid. When I disclosed this to anyone who themselves thought they are much wiser and knowledgeable than me promptly told, there is nothing like that, there is not address for Santa Claus. But it really does, atleast in Germany and it is well-known across the globe.

Six weeks before the Christmas, the Santa Claus post offices across Germany have started working on children's wish-lists from all over the World. Eight Post Offices spread across the Germany with seasonal names such as Heaven's Gate, Angel Church and St.Nicholas are funded and organized by Germany's Post (Deutsche Post) and employs people to answer each child's letter they receive. It is estimated that they receive approx 280,000 letters from 80 countries including India, US, Ghana, Mali etc. The employers of these Santa Clause Post Offices can write letters in 16 different languages and attend to each letter with utmost care. All the German postmen have received instructions to forward any letter addressed to Santa, Jesus or St.Nicholas eventhou no postage stamp has been attached to one of these eight post offices.

One of the famous Santa Claus Post Office address is as follows:
Weihnachtsmann (Santa Claus)
16798 Himmelpfort
In Germany, Christmas is called Weihnacht which means Holy Night and Weihnachtsmann means Holy Night Man or Santa Claus.
So get ready to prepare your wishlist and send it to Santa Claus, you will definitely get a reply back from Santa may be with lot of surprises :-)
