The Gay NYC Couple That Received 100s Of Kids’ Santa Letters &Ndash; And Granted Their Xmas Wishes

It’s unclear why Jim and Dillon are receiving “hundreds of letters addressed to Santa Claus.” They really have no idea. But while most children’s letters addressed to the North Pole are destined to go unanswered, this Manhattan gay couple — who live on West 22nd Street in Manhattan, in Apt. 7A — aren’t letting the correspondence go ignored. After trying to find out why St. Nick’s mail was erroneously redirected to them, Jim and Dillon came up empty. The work of a sloppy postal worker? Doesn’t matter, they say. So they started distributing the letters to friends, with the promise that each would fulfill a child’s Christmas wish. This is just terrific. [NYT]
