Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to all of you!
There couldn’t be a better day for me to post the following video. The text is based on a true story. In 1897, a little girl wrote a letter to the New York Sun (one of New York’s newspapers at the time). She basically only had one question: Is there a Santa Clause. The letter ended up at the Desk of Frank Church, one of the editors at the Sun. This short clip contains his response as it was published 110 years ago in the New York Sun.

You can read all the details about the story at Wikipedia.

Credits go to David Ippolito, who took the story and included it in one of the songs on his Christmas album from 1999 (Just a Thought for Christmas). Please visit David’s website and listen to his podcast and his music. I love his music since the day that I saw him play live at “the hill” in New York’s Central Park.
