Note to Santa Returned to Sender

There was nothing wrong with the address. The handwriting was perfectly fine. It was a letter sent to Santa Claus at the North Pole. But my son’s thank-you note to Santa was labeled “Return to Sender.”

Since getting the letter back, I’ve wondered what could have gone wrong. Maybe Santa is in the Bahamas by this time of year and he isn’t taking or forwarding any mail. Maybe they have a lot of new, inexperienced staff at the post office.

But I fear the U.S. Postal Service has lost faith in Santa Claus. Any remake of Miracle on 34th Street will need to show the post office returning all letters from children requesting gifts. We’ll clip this letter back on our mailbox with a note that says, Try again. So we’ll see. Maybe next time we’ll have to use UPS.
