During this holiday season more than ever, our thoughts turn gratefully to those who have made our progress possible. And in this spirit we say Thank You & Best Wishes for the Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
1. All letters addressed to Santa in the United States go to Santa Claus, Indiana.
2. There is a village in Peru where people settle the previous year's grudges by fist fighting. They then start the new year off on a clean slate.
3. Some zoos accept donated Christmas trees as food for their animals.
4. Paul McCartney earns nearly half a million dollars every year from his Christmas song, which many critics regards as his worst song ever.
5. Many of the perpetually open Denny's restaurants were built without locks, which was problematic when they decided to close down for Christmas for the first time in 1988.
6. Japanese people traditionally eat at KFC for Christmas dinner, thanks to a successful marketing campaign 40 years ago. KFC is so popular that customers must place their Christmas orders 2 months in advance.
