    No More Letters To Santa?

    Because of a sexual predator, the US Postal Service will no longer accept letters to Santa Clause.............

    Volunteers strive to save Santa letter service - Yahoo! News

    What is your opinion? Should the USPS stop this tradtion or not?

    My dad, I miss him every day.

    The stupid post office could run a free background check on the volunteers to catch the obvious registered sex offenders.

    I could see how a pedaphile might get fixated on a child he answered a letter from, but it seems to me that if they had just run a cursory background check, it would catch most of them.

    Maybe the Santa Claus House or the volunteers could form a organization and register a DBA of "Santa" - then the post office would probably have to deliver the letters despite their paranoia.

    Problem is it is a relatively easy fix, so it probably won't be done. Just another way to take a child's joy out of Christmas!

    Sure you can. As long as you mention Muslim holidays too, like Ramadan and Kaboom.
