A New Record

In the office at work last night, I spotted something unusual: A letter to "Santa Claus, North Pole." Postmarked September 18th. I've never seen one so early in the year. There's a clerk at the Cape Coral station who handles the local letters to Santa, but I don't think that they usually start receiving those letters until November or so. This has to be a new record for earliness.

I think that the little girl who sent it either was confused about the calendar or else just wanted to get a jump on the competition by making sure that her order was first in line to be filled by the elves. I just hope she realizes that she still has another three months of being good still to go.
