YES, VIRGINIA, THERE IS A SANTA CLAUS
Eight year old Virginia O'Hanlon , writes a letter to the Sun newspaper in New York
asking whether Santa Claus exist in 1897.
The Sun's editor, Francis Church, wrote a editorial titled “Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa
Claus” . This is it below, read it and believe.
“ Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Clause. He exists as certain as love and generosity and
devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty
and joy. Alas, how dreary the world would be if there were no Santa Claus. It would be
as dreary as if there were no Virginia’s. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry,
no romance to make tolerable this existence and we should have no enjoyment except
sense and sight.
The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished”.
