Yes, Virginia, There Is A 
Santa Claus

Christmas is for children...
of all ages. 

It is the season for 


with a childlike wonderment 
in things seen 
and a childlike faith
in things unseen. 

My gift to you...
Seven days of Christmas sayings and images...

The beauty of 
*~... Christmas ... ~*

Yes, Virginia, There Is A 
Santa Claus

How dreary would be the world 
if there were no Santa Claus! 
It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. 
There would be 
no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance 
to make tolerable this existence. 

We should have no enjoyment, 
except in sense and sight. 
The eternal light 
with which childhood fills the world 
would be extinguished.

  1. My husband's mother was named Virginia and we used to use that phrase a lot when she was alive. I have a vintage book in red about the story.

  2. Wonderful quotes, some with warm memories.
    Merry Christmas Judith.
