A young girl delivers a letter to Santa Claus in Edmonds.

Do you believe in Santa Claus? Of course you do. We all do.

Which is why, as always, Santa Claus is waiting to hear from Edmonds kids.

So, kids, drop your letter to Santa in the red mailbox – right outside the Log Cabin Visitor Center on Fifth Avenue North by the Edmonds Historical Museum, you can't miss it – and receive a personal reply.

Parents, make sure that letters have a return address.

And please make sure the letter has the correct return address. There's no need to send a return envelope.

Remember: All letters to the North Pole must be submitted by Dec. 18 to get a response.

If you're a kid reading this, you might want to stop right now.

We have some background information on Santa's mailbox that we'd like to share.

It was 27 years ago that the red Santa box project was started in Edmonds by Park Maintenance Manager Rich Lindsay, who is today still making the rounds around town. He thought it would be fun to put a box outside the visitor center labeled "Santa's Mailbox North Pole."

It turns out that many youngsters deposited their wish lists into the box, and more than a few had addresses written on them. Santa's elves replied to all of them, with help from Lindsay's wife, Lana, and her young daughter Janine Harles, Lindsay's stepdaughter.
