Reach out and touch someone…

This is a wonderful time of year, we have the opportunity to connect with friends and family and celebrate this special season. One of the many ways we reach out is through Christmas cards. I found it interesting that in spite of the evolution of email and e-cards, Canada Post announced there has been very little drop in the volume of mail delivered at Christmas. In case you are running behind, you can still mail Santa. 

Santa Claus, North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0. (Canada Post provides a special postal code dedicated to Mr&Mrs Claus)

 

Canada Post receives just over 1,000,000 letters to Santa, written in 26 different languages. Thousands of Canadian postal workers volunteer to write responses. 

 

Interesting story, in 1955, Sears gave children a hotline number to reach Santa Claus, the number mistyped was by chance the number of the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD). Fortunately Colonel Harry Shoup had a good sense of humor, he shared that Santa Claus was indeed located on the radar heading south from the North Pole. NORAD now annually announces the location of Santa, as he takes his yearly trip.

 

I realize for some, this is a very difficult time of year for a variety of reasons. This season I wish you true joy, hope and love that this season was originally meant to honor.
