Who knew Santa had a branch office in Wilkes-Barre?

Olivia received the following letter in the mail today, postmarked from Wilkes-Barre, with no name in the return address.

Dear Olivia,

HO! HO! HO! My elves are very excited, my reindeer are restless, and all because Mrs. Claus posted the list with the names of the new born babies that I will be visiting this year.

I must say, you do bring a special joy to Santa, and I am sure a much greater joy to all who know you, far greater than all the presents that I can bring.

On this first Christmas, there will be many surprises under the tree just for you. I am getting ready for my trip, so I will be coming to your house soon. I send you my best wishes for a very special holidat season.

Merry Christmas,


Pretty cool. The note includes a copyright from, where you too can send a personalized letter to a child from Santa, the Easter Bunny, or the Tooth Fairy. Our thanks to whoever sent this one to Olivia.

Maybe Santa's using the Wilkes-Barre office due to all of the problems he faces each holiday season. (At least that's according to what I saw at Hey, it beats outsourcing the job to India. ;-)

Hey, check your e-mail.

I have just enough time to get A Certain Thing in Priority Mail.
