Binks Is Here

Commentary on the World


Some guy has to ruin Christmas for a bunch of kids just to get some jollies.

I’m glad Canada Post is continuing the program though - nowadays it’s all too easy to just say “screw it” and call it a day when it comes to voluntary programs like this. Whole lot less hassle that way.

EDIT: In the, “I never thought about it but knowing it makes things even more awesome” file…

More than 11,000 current and retired Canada Post employees, affectionately called Postal Elves, help Santa to ensure that every child’s letter gets an answer in the language in which the letter was written, including Braille (emails are answered in English or French).

I think it’s just great that no matter the language, Santa will still write back. I never even considered that they’d be looking out for non-English or French speakers; and Braille ups the awesomeness quotient at least 20%.
