Day 4

Post Office & Postcards 

Let's bring back some of those old-fashioned traditions and bring back some joy into the hearts of your family and friends - by sending a real old-fashioned letter or Christmas Card. Our new postmaster Spencer Currie, still uses the ink and fountain pen to write his letters, which is one of the reasons he has embraced this new role as Christkindl's Postmaster. 

You'll find the green Mailbox next to the Oktoberfest HUT at Christkindl's main location on Gaukel Street (between Joseph & Charles St.).
