Their popularity may rank up there with Santa if you talk to some people and the postal workers in Marianna say that this time of year makes the job worth it.
Their sleigh may not be equipped with eight tiny reindeer and I'm sure you'll never see them coming down your chimney, but that doesn't stop these postal workers from feeling like Saint Nick this time of year.
Despite recent weather conditions these elves won't rest until Santa's work is done.
Keith McDonald, postal worker, said, "It's the best time of the year to be a mailman. The weather, there's nothing we can do about it. We just get out here and do our job."
So we should all appreciate these men and women for the efforts that they make and the Christmas memories that they insure.
