How Many Letters Did Santa Get?
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Santa Claus is pretty much wrapped up with his gift giving at this point and some may be wondering, just how busy has he been?
So we want to know how many letters Santa received and where the most of them came from.
An international mailing organization said Santa likely got more than seven million letters this year in his mailbox from all over the world.
Last year, the most requests rolled in from France where about 1.7 million French children wrote to old Saint Nick.
The number two slot went to Canada and the US came in third.
Here's a little fun fact: Because New York City is so big, Santa's letters have their own special set of elves dubbed "Operation Santa." These people respond to the more than half a million letters Santa receives from the Big Apple alone.
