Every parent I know has had to answer this question in one form or another. Is there a Santa Claus? The best answer to this question was written by veteran newspaperman, Francis P. Church, back on September 21, 1897, on the editorial page of the New York Sun. Eight-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon had asked her father this very same question: Is there a Santa Claus? Her father told her to write to the newspaper asking this question. He told her that they would definitely know the answer. Attached you can read the original answer. After you read the article I think you will agree with me that “YES” there is a Santa Claus. Please read this most historical response to this question. Please explain to your daughter that Santa exists. We don’t have to see him to believe. The world is full of amazing things. These things make our lives enjoyable, happy, and wonderful. These things make our lives worth living. Santa Claus lives in the many wonderful holiday traditions that bring us joy and wonderment in our lives. All we need to know is that deep down in our heart we know Santa exists.
I believe that your daughter will understand the meaning of Santa Claus, and will always have a warm loving feeling in her heart for Santa.
