That's the (holiday name goes here) spirit!

In a reprint of an editorial that originally appeared in the New York Sun in 1897 (back when kids read newspapers), The Freeman is telling Virginia that there is a Santa Claus.

And even though Virginia O'Hanlon died in 1971 and is buried in Chatam Rural Cemetery in Columbia County, she still needs a reminder.

As do we.

So Merry Christmas to all.

P.S. I'm not pushing my beliefs down your throat. I'm just including everyone with the sincere hope of getting more presents.
