First Coast children seeking to send their Christmas lists to Santa Claus may drop them off at Santa’s mailbox located near Nona Blue in Sawgrass Village and at the Ponte Vedra Recorder office.
Letters mailed between Nov. 15 and Dec. 15 will receive a response from Santa thanks to a special arrangement the Ponte Vedra Beach Division of the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce made with the North Pole.
“I have asked the St. Johns County Chamber of Commerce to help me out by collecting your letters in this special mailbox,” Saint Nick said. “No need for a stamp, but if you would like me to respond to your letter, please include your return address on the envelope.
“The nice folks at the Chamber will be collecting letters for me up until Dec. 15,” added Santa. “After that, I will be too busy to respond because I will be preparing for my busy night on Christmas Eve. I look forward to reading your letters!”
