Santa to get record 8 million letters: UN

Many of us cannot recall the last time we got a letter in the mail, but Santa will this year receive a record eight millionsanta-letters of them, the United Nations said earlier in December 2013.

Global postal services expect to sort through that number of wish lists by the time Christmas rolls around, according to a survey by the Universal Postal Union (UPU), which coordinates the world’s mail systems.

That is two million more than the haul estimated in a similar survey in 2007.

Postal services in Canada, France, Spain and Ireland “are reporting increases in the number of letters sent to Santa, Pere Noel or the Three Wise Men, from last year”, UPU said in a statement, referring to the French and Spanish versions of the famous gift-deliverer.
