Why send out a letter to the North Pole in this modern day and age, when you can simply give Santa a call on his cell phone?
According to official reports, two young boys from Mayville, Wisconsin, called the emergency hotline while trying to get in touch with Santa Claus. The 6 year old Blake Becker and his 3 year old brother Brody were playing around their home when Blake offered his younger sibling to call Santa. Since Brody was playing with the boys’ father’s phone, he accidentally dialed 911. Mr. and Mrs. Becker realized what their kids had done only after they were visited by the police. Once the officers realized there was no real emergency, they even laughed at the ridiculousness of the situation and told the boys that the best way to get in touch with Mr. Claus is to see him in person. They also explained to the kids that the 911 hotline is for emergencies only.
