Santa: Making Glad the Heart of Childhood

December 10, 2010

“Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.  He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy.”
     — Francis Church, from The Sun of September 21, 1897

"Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever."

“The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see.”
