Letters to Santa

As much as history reveals, the Postal Service began receiving letters to Santa Claus more than 100 years ago. However, its involvement was made official when in 1912 Postmaster General Frank Hitchcock authorized local Postmasters to allow postal employees and citizens to respond to the ever growing number of letters received
every holiday season.

In the 1940s, mail volume for Santa increased so much so that the Postal Service invited charitable organizations, community groups and corporations to read and respond to the children who wrote letters to Santa.

Over the past 60-plus years, the program has taken on a life of its own. Today, cities around the country have hugely successful Letters to Santa programs working with recognized charitable organizations, major corporations, local businesses, postal employees and private citizens to make a difference in the lives of children from coast to coast.

In 2012, the Postal Service celebrated it’s 100th anniversary of the Letters to Santa program as it
continues to fulfill the dreams of children nationwide. One hundred years later, postal employees, volunteers and
organizations remain committed to making children’s Christmas wishes come true.

Big God or little god?

As a culture, we have limited our ability to see our Creator by listening to what people say about God. We have an idea or an ideal of the divine based on what a relative told us or what a preacher said when we were little. As long as we believe what we were told…

You Were…

Wherever I traveled. You were manifested; Wherever I looked. You were revealed. In ka’ba, idol-temple, synagogue, and church, I saw All were searching for You, and to all You were a Friend. I sought only You in every person I met, every place I went; You were in every sign, both the outer and the…
