Meet The Chief Elf Who Replies To 25,000 Letters To Santa Every Year
December 28, 2018
Ever since the tiny Midwestern town of Santa Claus, Ind. was featured in "Ripley's Believe it or Not" in 1930, the US Postal Service started "unofficially" forwarding letters to Santa there.
"We get letters from all over the United States — and almost every country," chief elf Pat Koch, 87, says. "Santa letters, even if they're addressed to the North Pole or the Arctic Circle, they come to Santa Claus, Ind."
The town receives around 20,000 to 25,000 letters to Santa annually.
Koch and her team of dedicated elves make sure each child gets a personalized response from the big guy.
