Dear Santa: Mailmen Talk About What Really Happens To All Those Letters Addressed To Santa

Dear Santa...

With temperatures dropping and Fall officially here, it’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas. That means trees, presents, and letters to Santa Claus.

Of course, we all (hopefully) know that Santa Claus isn’t really the one putting presents under the trees every year. But that doesn’t stop thousands of letters from being written to Santa Claus every year. We know they’re not going to the North Pole, but where DO they go?

If you’ve ever wondered to little kids’ wish lists when they mail them off to Santa, you don’t have to wonder anymore: these postal workers spilled on what they really do with all of those letters, and it’s probably not what you think.
