No More Letters to Santa

Santa Claus, also known as Patrick Farmer, at Santa Claus House in North Pole, Alaska, November 18, 2009, holds letters from children sent this year that the U.S. Postal Service says they will no longer deliver. Since 1954, letters generically addressed to "Santa Claus, North Pole" have been delivered to North Pole, Alaska, where the residents have answered them. However, when a registered sex offender was caught trying to work as a volunteer answering letters, postal officials canceled the program. (AP Photo/Sam Harrel)
