Chief Elf in Santa Claus Indiana, Pat Koch

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:10 pm on 22 December 2015

Every year, for 100 years, letters for Santa Claus have poured into a small town in America's heartland, which is no surprise since the town is called .Santa Claus. The naughty and nice express their deepest wishes and darkest fears to the man in the red suit. The letters ask for toys, for family reconciliations, for a time machine and have even included a touch of extortion if the goods aren't delivered on Christmas morning. Note to self, do not threaten Santa's reindeer. Each letter is lovingly answered by a team of Elves. We'll talk to Chief Elf in Santa Claus Indiana, Pat Koch.
