Canada Post: Write to Santa and he'll Write Back to you!

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 28, 2006) - Vacation is over and the elves are back to help Santa Claus. The expanded workshop is bursting with sparkling wrapping paper, bows and multi-coloured ribbons to wrap children's presents.

Fortunately, Santa Claus can count on the help of more than 2,000 Canada Post elves who will reply to approximately 250,000 letters this year in Quebec, thus giving Santa a big helping hand. Across Canada, elves will reply to more than one million letters in more than 29 languages including French, English, Japanese, Spanish, and even Esperanto and Braille.

Santa Claus loves receiving letters and drawings; in fact, sometimes he even forgets to sleep. He snores when wide awake, the poor man! Children can write to Santa Claus at his new personal address or send him an e-mail by visiting his brand new Web site. At the same time, they can have a little fun because the Web site also has online games, colouring paper, and a crafts section where they can even create their own Christmas writing paper. One click and they will be there, just like magic:

Since Santa Claus' memory sometimes fails him-this is quite normal at his age-the elves would like to remind all the children who write to Santa to include their return address and postal code so he can reply. Write to Santa Claus, he'll be happy to write back to you!
