Where do all the Santa letters go?

Between 1954 and 2009, any letter addressed generically to "Santa Claus, North Letters from Santa Pole" was forwarded by the Santa Letters US Postal Service to the Alaskan town of the same name, where it was answered by volunteers. The US Postal Service made a decision to end the program in 2009 on privacy grounds, but it was reinstated shortly thereafter.
