Muppets Join USPS To Kick Off Holiday Mailing Season


The Postal Service today, in partnership with the Muppets, kicks off the holiday mailing season with a special “Letters to Santa” program event at the James A. Farley Post Office in New York City.

Postmaster General Jack Potter will be joined by Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear to celebrate how postal employees, charitable organizations and businesses responding to Santa letters have made a difference in the lives of children coast to coast.

For nearly 100 years, the Postal Service’s “Letters to Santa” program has made holiday dreams come true for children in need. Letters to Santa is a letter adoption program enabling members of the public and charitable organizations to respond to children’s letters addressed to Santa Claus, the North Pole and other seasonal characters.

New York City’s program is the largest in the country, with tens of thousands of people adopting letters each year.

A postmark of Kermit the Frog will appear in the upper right-hand corner of holiday cards and letters mailed across the nation throughout the month of December.
