Send your cards with a fun Holiday postmark

Holiday Postmarking Across the Country is a free service of the USPS. It’s a fun tradition to have your cards postmarked from a different Christmassy city each year!

You can have your Christmas cards postmarked from Bethlehem, Christmas, Nazareth, Rudolph or dozens of other holiday-themed communities. These special Christmas postmarks tell your friends and loved ones that you “went that extra mile” to make this season’s greeting special.

Christmas card senders and other interested customers can write to these Post Offices for postmarks to keep or to share with friends. Enclose a stamped, addressed card or letter in another envelope or box labeled “Christmas re-mailing” and address it to the Postmaster of one of the towns listed below. Please allow enough time for postmarking, remailing, and delivery.
