Swiss Post is pleased to have been able to help Santa Claus: from the end of November 2022, Swiss Post received 33,626 letters from all over the country addressed to Santa. This figure is, however, slightly lower than in the previous year. In their letters, the kids convey their material and immaterial wishes, while also showing their concern about the war in Ukraine. And many “big kids” also write to Santa: people who feel lonely and enjoy receiving a little word and a thought from him.
