SALT LAKE CITY — Yes, there is a Santa Claus — and the U.S. Postal Service can help you prove it when Santa replies to your child’s letter — complete with a North Pole postmark.

Here are the steps for your child to get a letter back from Santa:

• Have your child write a letter to Santa and place it in an envelope addressed to: Santa Claus, North Pole.

• Later, when alone, open the envelope and write a personalized response.

• Insert the response letter into an envelope and address it to the child.
