As Christmas gets closer, letters to Santa are pouring in... several hundred of those pass through the Bowling Green Post Office every year.
And with a little help from one of Santa's assistants, Becky Boyd, Santa gets those letters in a jiffy. Officially, Becky Boyd works for Bowling Green's Post Office, a job she's had for the past 11 years. But during that time, she has also been working as one of Santa's helpers.
As letters to Santa come in, Boyd sorts and checks them. She also reads them with a careful eye to make sure special needs get special attention. Some letters are even shared with local organizations who pitch in to help out.
Like most others who work behind the scenes to make the holidays bright, Boyd is slow to take credit, and quick to say she's no hero. That credit she says, goes to Santa himself. But she does say she hopes the work done at the Post Office will help to keep the magic and spirit of Christmas alive in our area.
