Five years ago, Michelle and Nickolas Millikan began their own Christmas tradition. After a strong response from the Santa Mailbox at church, the Millikan’s decided to create their own mailbox for Santa’s letters.
Fully provided with music and snow when someone drops in a letter, there’s also something special many people don’t realize.
The Millikan’s reply back to each letter sent.
“It’s a really personal letter that they receive,” says Michelle. “So I’ll sit there and type, so if somebody is having a hard time in school, I’ll kind of write a little note in there for them for that. So each letter is a little bit more personal on each thing.”
All they ask is that a return address is given. Whether naughty or nice, you’re or old, near or far, the Millikan’s will reply straight from Santa’s Front Office.
They encourage people who do not live in the area to send a letter to Santa.
Send it to their address, 1026 Belmeade Dr. Corpus Christi, TX 78412.
Nickolas Millikan says if people want a reply from Santa before Christmas, to send letters no later than today.
Santa’s Mailbox will be available until Christmas Eve.
