PETERBOROUGH -- After the post office returned a child's letter to Santa because of a misspelling, the little boy received a special delivery -- a personal letter from Santa.
"We really don't know what happened when you mailed it. Our North Pole magic didn't seem to work for a moment. But we're very happy we finally received it," Santa wrote to six-year-old Adam Revak.
Santa wrote about rock hunting - an interest of Adam's.
In his letter to Santa, Adam asked for a microscope and a book about rocks.
Adam wrote the letter and put the address on the envelope.
He got the postal code right: H0H 0H0. But there was a slight problem with the spelling on the address. It read "theNorthPowle."
"We sent the letter out to Santa Claus and it got returned," said Adam's father, Chris. "Canada Post said that shouldn't have happened.
"We didn't know why it got returned. That's what was the confusing thing. They said it could have got misread."
