Letters sent to Santa Claus are being returned or recycled due to a new postal service regulation. The national policy change follows an incident on the east coast last December in which a volunteer responding to Santa letters was identified as a sex offender. The change effects post offices and community groups around the country that have traditionally worked together to answer Santa letters, but the change is hitting especially hard in the Christmas themed city of North Pole.
