Elves Millie and Anne
We become elves and with the help of loving parents, grandparents or friends we compose, address and send very personalized letters mailed from the North Pole to children all over the U.S. We don't eliminate Canada but we have to charge an additional dollar for the postage.
Rather than being a response to Christmas "wants" our letters focus on how the child is succeeding and what needs a tad of improvement. (My all time favorite letter mentioned Santa needing to tell a little fellow he really had to wear underwear to school daily.) I would have killed when I was a kid to see Santa was proud of my report card, or leaf raking, or whatever Mom and Dad thought I had done well. I probably would not have been as happy to see he really KNEW I shoved my dirty clothes under the bed rather than put them in the laundry basket.
So if you are near my house and you hear early Christmas music know that I am not crazy. I'm just getting my jolly on.
