18,000 children’s letters answered


As every year, Santa Claus was able to rely on strong support from Swiss Post employees during Advent last year. Swiss Post helped Santa to answer exactly 18’699 children’s letters. That’s a new record.

The majority of replies – 10’719 – were sent to Western Switzerland, 3,250 to Ticino and 2,688 to German-speaking Switzerland. 322 replies were sent to children abroad. The five-strong Swiss Post team supporting Santa in Chiasso went to great pains to reply even to letters with incomplete or incorrect sender details. As a result, over 96 percent or 17’971 of all children’s letters were answered along with a small present. The year before, Swiss Post received 18,386 letters for Santa and helped answer 17,686.
