  • Description

    The hundreds of
    thousands of letters sent each year to "Santa Claus, Greenland" from children
    all over the world were filmed at destination by Visnews.

    Diverted to Copenhagen, Denmark, Santa's agents, the Danish Tourist Association,
    in collaboration with the SAS airline, have a full time job answering the mail.

    And, despite adult cynicism, letters to Santa do get a reply - and a present.

    This year it is a book on Hans Christian Anderson.

    To cope with the rush, about 200 girls are working full time in Copenhagen and
    hundreds of volunteers are working in their own homes.
