December 23-- For a town of less than 150 people, the city of Santa Claus, Georgia is doing big things for fans of Christmas cheer. Sue Grisham has been working as Santa's secretary by postmarking thousands of letters for the past four years and according to Grisham, "some people bring them to me and some mail them from as far as West Virginia to receive an unofficial postmark from Santa Claus, Georgia."
Many from all over have taken advantage of this opportunity and it has kept Sue Grisham extremely busy. "Last year I had over 4,200 cards and so far this year we have had about 3,900 cards send for postmarking. One day a few weeks ago, we had 529 cards come through in just one day" Grisham said.
