Letters to Santa

This news story came down the wire at work today, and I just had to share it with the world, cuz I found it interesting.

The Universal Postal Union has released their statistics on letters to Santa. The UPU is the department of the UN that co-ordinates post offices the world over to assist in the delivery of international mail.

According to the UPU, Santa is getting over 6 million letters this year. Santa has five million helpers in 20 countries to make sure that every letter gets an answer. That comes out to 660,000 post offices that receive Santa's mail.

For some odd reason, most letters to Santa get sent to Finland. Finland receives letters to Santa from over 150 countries.

But we all know that Santa lives in Canada. I know it, because the CBC said so. Canada gets the second-most letters to Santa, and those Canadian helpers send out replies in 26 languages.
