What did your child ask for Christmas this year?

An Post has delivered over 125,000 Santa letters to the North Pole this year.

An Post confirmed that letters arrived from children all around Ireland. Their staff made sure they all arrived in the North Pole before the 25th.

One child even sent their Santa letter in July. Talk about being organised.

An Post spokesperson Eimear Breen told The Irish Mirror;

“Some children post letters a bit late, so those posted this week may not receive a reply – but they’ll all be delivered to the North Pole.”
