(East Farmingdale, NY)- There are multiple ways to get your letter to Santa this year. On Tuesday, Nassau County Executive Laura Curran announced that the children of Nassau County will once again be able to send their holiday lists directly to Santa through special mailboxes at various county parks and even via email as part of the Mail Your Letters To Santa Program.
Nassau County officials say that children who send letters to Santa will receive a reply in the form of a “Santa-Gram” from the North Pole, with Santa’s elves at the Parks Department pitching in to send cheery but noncommittal letters in response to children’s letters.
To assure a reply, each letter must contain the child’s name and address, written legibly. There is no postage necessary for the Santa letters. The “Santa-Grams” will be sent before the holiday.
Santa’s Mailboxes at Nassau County Parks will be available from November 30, 2020 to December 18, 2020.
Colorful red and green mailboxes will be accessible from 10am to 4pm daily. They will be placed in a prominent location in the lobbies or just outside of the administration buildings of the following parks:
• Cantiague Park, West John Street, Hicksville
• Christopher Morley Park, Searingtown Road, Roslyn – North Hills
• Grant Park, Broadway & Sheridan Ave., Hewlett
• Mackey Park, Lakeview Drive & Washington Ave, Roosevelt
• Wantagh Park, Merrick Road, Wantagh
• Eisenhower Park’s Aquatic Center, Merrick Avenue, East Meadow
• Old Bethpage Village Restoration, Round Swamp Road, Old Bethpage (Wednesday-Sunday)
Residents can also email Santa at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The letters can also be dropped off at the Parks Department’s Administration Building in Eisenhower Park, Monday through Friday from 9am to 4:45pm. For more information, visit www.nassaucountyny.gov/parks.
