LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Santa Claus, Indiana, has revealed this year's design for the city's annual "Santa Claus" holiday postmark.

According to a news release from the city, the small town's post office is the only one in the world bearing the "Santa Claus" name, and it receives over 400,000 pieces of mail in December.

"The Santa Claus Post Office has offered the special postmark every holiday season since 1983," the news release states. "Each year, a local high school student designs the special picture postmark for use on Christmas cards and other mail from the Santa Claus Post Office during the holiday season."

The 2016 postmark is available only in Santa Claus, Indiana, on working days between now and Dec. 24, 2016.
