Noel is a small town on the southwest corner of Missouri. Only about 2,000 people live there. It’s a town where people go to float on the Elk River or see giant rock bluffs that linger over the old Highway 71. Almost every Christmas at its post office, Patricia Coggin says something magical happens. This December in McDonald County, an 89-year tradition is spreading holiday cheer. OzarksFirst took a two-hour road trip to a unique post office in the “Christmas City.” For 11 months out of the year, the city is pronounced ‘No-le.’ However, once the calendar flips to December, ‘No-Le’ becomes ‘No-El.’ Every Christmas and people from around the world stop by or send letters to the Noel post office. All for a unique holiday stamp on their mail. “We do the red reef,” Coggin said. “Then we have the green Christmas tree.” Each stamp says, “Seasons greetings from Noel, Missouri, Christmas City, USA.”
