Merry Christmas

Jewelled Snowflake
In 1897, Dr. Philip O'Hanlon, a coroner's assistant in Manhattan, faced a problem every parent one day must face. His daughter was beginning to doubt the existence of Santa Claus, and her friends were telling her he was fictional. O'Hanlon told 8-year-old Virginia to write the New York Sun. The newspaper, he said, would never lie about such a weighty topic.

Virginia's letter landed on the desk of Francis Church, a former Civil War correspondent and son of a Baptist minister who had been scarred by the brutality and suffering of the war and years of postwar hopelessness in American society. Church's response, which ran as an unsigned editorial, since has become history's most reprinted editorial. It has appeared partially or in its entirety and in dozens of languages in books, movies, other editorials, and on posters and stamps. The Sun reprinted it annually until the newspaper folded in 1949.

The letter and editorial are reprinted here.


Dear Editor:

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus. Papa says, "If you see it in The Sun it's so." Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

--Virginia O'Hanlon


Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except [what] they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! 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.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You may tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

fic: road to nowhere

Share
Road to Nowhere
Title: Road to Nowhere
Pairing/Characters: Dean/Bela, Sam
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~5,600
Summary: Dean begrudgingly enlists Bela's help on a case with rather personal implications.
Notes: Written for spn_summerlove and meant to fit into canon between 3.06 and 3.07. Thanks to my beta luv4elvis and my very own mapquest nymeggi .

The mountains flattened out into yellow green fields, rolling in gentle waves away from the road towards the horizon. Dean drove with his window down, and the smell of tilled earth and the slight scent of fertilizer wafted in on the damp breeze. They hit a patch of construction late in the day passing through Ohio, Dean was following the orange-marked detour along rural streets when the skies opened and delivered on their promise of rain.Collapse )

September 1st, 2008

There's nothing like a great week of tennis to get over a lousy bunch of news. This weekend especially had some amazing matches, including two fantastic Ashe showstoppers from my boy Roddick. Now if they would just stop showing that bored whore in the stands...

Prison Break starts tonight! OMG you guys. I am just... I am just. That's all I got. I've been soaking up Wentworth Miller/Sarah Wayne Callies interviews and tons of (albiet mostly terrible) fanvids on the Tube in antsy preparation. Could not be more excited for the premiere of a show I literally thought I'd never feel anything for again. Good show, show!

OTH starts as well, I've managed to stay fairly spoiler free, unlike last year - the spoiler orgy. All I hope is that Lucas called Peyton and then everything else will play out however it will play out. Seriously, they'll have a lot of crap to work out, but really, let's not pretend Leyton isn't endgame. Or at least not in my presence :D

On a politcal note, I've ranted plenty about my thoughts on McCain's choice of VP elsewhere. Let's just say I have nothing good to say and leave it at that in favor of something positive.

There haven't been a lot of times I've been proud to be an American as of late. Our government has put us in the shit hole in foreign relations, not to mention the dissention on home soil. Watching Barack Obama's acceptance speech, I felt hope for this country for the first time in eight years. He not only speaks of change, but holds the conviction and drive to actually implement it. To put aside partisan politics and work for the country as a whole, not just for one party. On that night, what he said was true - we are all patriots, and will continue to be, with a leader who believes in this country enough to fight for it.

Damn right, REO

Share
No REO?
Just got back from the REO Speedwagon concert, and it totally rocked my socks. They played at our county fair, and the outdoor amphitheater holds about ten thousand in "standing room only" capacity, and I'd say it was just about there. Just a sea of people, packed in everywhere, and REO totally delivered, played all their great tunes and some new ones that actually sounded pretty good. For as long as they've been playing (longer than I've been alive, lordy), Kevin Cronin and crew can still rock. Wee fact? Kevin's brother Sean Cronin used to be our local weather man. Small world, isn't it?

Oh, and yeah, I may never hear again. Rock shows be LOUD, yo. Now I'm gonna go pass out, my head is KILLING me (wonder why?)

PS - After their encore, Kevin Cronin said his second good-night to the crowd with "Thank you, we are the Jonas Brothers! Nice to be seeing you all!" I laughed my ass off.

Can I get a hug too?

Dude, on the ESPYs tonight, Justin Timberlake took a moment out of his opening monologue to go over and give Aaron Rodgers (new QB for the Packers) a big hug and told him to hang in there. It was awesomesauce. The best part? The shot of Favre sitting there looking like the shamed arse he's being. Priceless. Thanks JT!
