Letters to Santa
Children from around the world are also encouraged to send their holiday letters to Santa at his North Pole home:
Santa reminds all his young friends that it is very important to include a complete return address, so that Canada Post can deliver his reply.
Last year, Santa received more than 1 million letters (for the fourth year in a row!), in 27 languages, from his pen pals around the world. Thanks to more than 11,000 volunteer Canada Post employees (current and retired) – Santa's dedicated postal elves – each child received an answer from the North Pole!
Santa also received more than 30,000 e-mails from children who wrote to Santa via Canada Post's website.
