Santa Claus back at work in Germany answering Christmas mail

Santa Claus is at it again, answering thousands of Christmas letters from children around the world at a special post office in the northern German town of Himmelpfort

They answer in various languages and also in braille, and each letter has a special Santa postmark.

The tradition began when postal workers in 1984 received two letters addressed to Santa in Himmelpfort, which means “heaven’s gate.”

Not wanting to send them back “recipient unknown” they answered.
