Advent Fast Fact

Canada Post, tired of seeing too many letters addressed to Santa end up in the dead letter files, came up with an ingenious solution.

Postal codes in Canada consist of six characters, alternating letter-number. For example, an address in Toronto might have a postal code of M6G 2M1.

The good folks at Canada Post assigned Santa his own postal code: H0H 0H0.

Since 1982, over one million letters per year mailed using that code have received an answer from one of 11,000 retired or current Canada post employees.
