      When kids all over the world address their Christmas letter to Santa Claus, it gets sent to Rovaniemi in Finland, probably the closest inhabited village to the actual North Pole, where a team of people respond on Nick's behalf. Except for kids in the US that is, where letters to Santa Claus get forwarded to North Pole, Alaska - a suburb of …

      ... arrived -- Roger and Chris headed back to Anchorage and the airport. There they go, visualize it: Roger carrying a small cooler full of filleted "Reds," Chris exhausted but humming Happy Days Are Here Again.
