BTW, since I'm cross-posting and will get yelled at despite the humorous
intent, here's a few more tidbits - you can find Santa's OFFICIAL USPS

in alt.snail.mail (e-mail me if the message has timed out and I'll send
it along) and the folk at http://www.cyberhighway.net/~citius/santa.html
have developed a Santa Tracking Program for Windows - shareware - you
