Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus.
On today’s LM_Net Select I found a wonderful new source for primary documents: Letters of Note: Correspondence Deserving of a Wider Audience. New documents are added daily to this site. You must follow the link and read today’s post.
It includes the original letter written by Virginia O’Hanlon in 1897 to the editor of The Sun, a New York newspaper. Following her letter is the official reply as posted in The Sun. Take a few moments out of your very busy day to read the editorial. It could never be explained better…yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. These printed words written over a hundred years ago will warm your heart today. Merry Christmas, everyone.
