NBC NATIONAL NEWS — With just days to Christmas, the post office is all a buzz with last minute letters to Santa still arriving.
They come from all over the world.
Needless to say Santa is busy as can be taking some traditional requests and a few modern ones too!
He is giving advice too!
"You know the most important thing in Christmas is families, really," explained Santa. "Toys are secondary this year. Families is more important than any other thing in life."
And he even managed to squeeze in a few photo ops.
As the big night approaches Santa's reindeer are preparing for their long flight.
Santa's trying to fuel up as well.
"Not as much cookies this year. More fruits. I'd appreciate it," said Santa.
One more thing.
"And don't forget to go to bed early like mommy says now. Because I can't deliver presents until you're asleep," Santa exclaimed to a little girl. "You know that don't you? Okay."
