Ho ho ho
"Ho ho ho" is a textual rendition of a particular type of deep-throated laughter/laugh or chuckle, most associated with Santa Claus.
The laughter of Santa Claus has long been an important attribute by which the character is identified, but it also does not appear in many non-English-speaking countries. The traditional Christmas poem A Visit from St. Nicholas relates that Santa has:
- . . . a little round belly
That shook when he laugh'd, like a bowl full of jelly
As a Canadian Postal Code
The full address is:
- SANTA CLAUS
- NORTH POLE H0H 0H0
In French, Santa's name translates as "Father Christmas", addressed as:
- PÈRE NOËL
- PÔLE NORD H0H 0H0
Since the postal code system has 'H0' set up to represent a tiny or rural village ('0') inside of the city of Montreal or Laval ('H'), H0 codes are quite rare and a seasonal allocation of H0H does not conflict with any other normal postal codes.
