Rules for the U.S. Postal Service be a Santa (answer a Santa letter) program.

All “Dear Santa” letters are to be picked up at a post office in person. “Dear Santa” letters will no longer be sent out by mail and telephone requests are no longer accepted.

Companies and organizations can pick up letters by appointment only with your local post office if that facility has “Dear Santa” letters available. You will need to present a letter of introduction on company letterhead and a valid ID.

Individuals wishing to answer “Dear Santa” letters are not required to make an appointment. Please contact your local postmaster to see if Operation Santa Claus is available in your area at this time.

All “Dear Santa” helpers must agree with the USPS Privacy Act Statement listed on the PS Form 6012-1 (Operation Santa Letter Adoption Individual) and PS Form 6012 (Operation Santa Letter Adoption Third Party).

All “Dear Santa” helpers are required to show one piece of acceptable identification.
But let's not ask for I.D. when voting for the President of the United States. What a bunch of hypocritical patooty.
