Raleigh woman: Santa answered my letter

— After months of unemployment, Melinda Pfeiffer turned to a higher power. She wrote a letter to Santa asking for a job.

"Dear Santa, all I want for Christmas is a job," she wrote. 

The web editor said more than a dozen interviews had turned out the same – until the jolly old elf came through for her.

On Tuesday, Pfeiffer accepted a contract position at Lenovo. 

"Santa apparently does read his mail," Pfeiffer said.
