US Postal Service ends Santa letters to the North Pole program

The mayor of North Pole, Alaska is calling a recent postal service decision an assault on Christmas. For years, the U.S. Postal Service has delivered thousands of letters to Santa Claus in North Pole, Alaska.

Now, in the interest of efficiency and security, the post office has changed its policy. It will no longer deliver letters to Santa here, and requests for a North Pole postmark will be filled through its Anchorage office.

The decision has angered many residents, most notably the owner of the area's primary attraction, the Santa Claus house.
