(ANSA) – PARIS, NOV 11 – French children will have until December 17 to write their letters to Santa Claus if they want to receive an answer: this was announced today by the French Post Office, which will open a “Santa Claus secretariat” in Gironde.
“As Christmas approaches – the Post Office group said – everything becomes possible, exchanging correspondence with Santa Claus”. And it is simply the name of Santa Claus that the children will have to write on the envelope of their letter, not forgetting their address on the back if they want to receive the answer. Furthermore, it will not be necessary to postage.
For those wishing to go up to speed, the electronic version of this initiative will also be possible: they can go to pere-noel.laposte.fr and choose the option “write to Santa Claus”.
The service will be active thanks to about fifty volunteers, postmen and fixed-term contracts who will work alongside them, who will start working next Monday, pledging to respond in French or English to all the children and classes of schoolchildren who will write.
The service has been in operation since 1962 and last year the post office received 1.25 million letters for Santa Claus. (HANDLE).
