Mayor of North Pole Blasts 'Grinch-Like' Postal Service for Decision to Stop Letters to Santa
The mayor of the North Pole likened the U.S. Postal Service to the grinch who stole Christmas Friday after it decided to stop a 55-year-old "letters to Santa" program.
"We are outraged that they would attack our children, attack our community in this way," Doug Isaacson, the mayor of the North Pole in Alaska, said on Fox News. "It is very grinch-like."
Isaacson is upset by the decision by the Postal Service to discontinue the program, begun in his small Alaskan town in 1954, where each year volunteers open and respond to thousands of letters addressed to "Santa Claus, North Pole."
