Yes Virginia

 We have now entered December so since this is Christmas month I will be doing a number of Christmas them posts.

This first one is taken from a Christmas card Mum & Dad gave my sister Sue.

The Answer to Virginia

Many years back the editor of the New York Sun received a letter from Virginia O'Hanlon.....

Dear Editor, I am eight years old, some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Please tell me the truth.....

The answer to Virginia published in the Sun the next day caused such a nation-wide interest it was reprinted for many Christmas's afterwards.

I will start the answer tomorrow............


Why do one long ass post when I can spread it over two or three posts.

Interesting to read what they said - and yes, agree, why do one long post and it's easy to break it up, less to read all in one day, especially if you are busy.
