Elf Hugo just called to ask if I could send any help over to the North Pole Post Office. They need help with their computers because the amount of email Santa is receiving right now is off the charts. He also says stocking mail has been more popular than ever this year.
“We should start to catch up with it all soon,” Elf Hugo said. “As kids realize that Santa will be launching soon they will start looking to write notes that they actually leave for Santa when he comes to their home. Once kids realize what time it is we catch things up pretty fast.”
Elf Hugo, though busy, said he is not concerned with having problems getting all the mail to Santa.
