Winter Wonderland Letters

This winter we have arranged for our community members to get special letters from their favorite winter wonderlands: Hogwarts School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, Elsa, Anna, and friends from Arendelle, and the Holiday Elves from the North Pole. These letters are for all ages and can be mailed locally or out of state. They are a great and unique gift idea this holiday season and are a great option if you can’t be with out-of-town friends and family members this year. For examples of what these letters will look like, visit

Registration Dates: Monday, November 2 – Monday, November 30

Expected Delivery: After Friday December 18

Cost: $10.00 per card
