Letters to Santa:  Springville children can write a letter to Santa and hand deliver them to the Springville UPS store (224 S Main) between December 1st and December 11th, 2020. Mailbox will be removed at noon on the 11th. A self-addressed stamped return envelope MUST be enclosed in order to receive a personal answer from Santa. Santa prefers letters that tell a little bit about the child such as their age, favorite holiday traditions, favorite holiday joke, questions about elves and life at the North Pole rather than a long list of what the child wants.  The more creative, the better. Drop letters with postage stamped return envelopes in the “North Pole Express” mailbox outside the UPS store to ensure prompt delivery to Santa. There is no fee, just the stamp on your self-addressed return envelope!
