The Utah Foundation for the Blind discovered this recently. In fact, Santa is so smart he can write in contracted or uncontracted braille, depending on which was used in the child’s letter.

Those who want to write a letter to Santa in braille should address it to Santa, c/o UFB, 2056 W. Carriage, Ave., Riverton, Utah 84065.

The letters should include the child’s name and address, and must be received by Dec. 20. The program is part of the Braille Literacy Program of the Utah Foundation for the Blind and Visually Impaired.
