-He is a figure known around the world, an endorsement for gift giving, the wintertime holiday season and dessert eating. At times he's called Saint Nicholas, Santa Claus or Kris Kringle and is perhaps the absolute most popular heavyset star - well at least to precede Elvis Presley. Yes, he is the loveable, putting up with and jolly previous chap we call Santa Claus. In 1897 one it was taken by little girl from Manhattan, at the urging of her father, upon himself to ask the Nyc Sun Newspaper once and for all if the person in the red suit was the real deal [[|this site]] .  
-Countless numbers of words are written to newspapers throughout the world annually, and few if any, will ever visit a moment of fame beyond the audience of their respective dailies. Nevertheless, over a hundred years ago an easy letter made up of only the words, I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say there's no Santa Claus. Papa says, If you see it in Sunlight, it is therefore. Please tell me the facts, is there a Santa Claus? Could go on to become among the most enduring symbols of North Americas take on Xmas [[|cosmetology colleges]] .  
-One day in September 1897 (historians suppose that the problem arose not in December as one may expect, but in September, because this would have been soon after the new school year had started and kids would have previously been turning their attention to Christmas) young Virginia O'Hanlon greeted her father, Dr. Philip O'Hanlon (who labored for a coroners office), with the type of purity only the very young can get. She probably asked in a small but curious voice if the rumours of her school chums were correct, was Santa Claus artificial? Now not knowing for certain how anxious the air got in the room at that time when Mr OHanlons only daughter or son asked him to debunk or agree with the history of St. Nick, we are able to only assume that he didn't have one's heart to break the reality to her himself. And therefore the letter (and its answer) that would visit become nearly just as much symbolic of the Christmas season as Santa himself was born.  
-Off Virginia went along to write a letter at her fathers recommendation, which she mailed herself, to the Newest York Sun newspaper where its response was given to an ex-civil war correspondent made newspaper editorial writer by the name of Francis Pharcellus Church. Story has it that Mr Church was not exactly jumping for joy at the task, but he took the childs page back again to his desk and proceeded to publish one of the most stirring tributes to Christmas that's ever graced the pages of any paper.  
-Perhaps it was the atrocities of war he had experienced firsthand, perhaps it was their own need to believe in Father Christmas, or perhaps it was precisely what he'd have said had anybody asked him if Santa was real, but that time Francis Church wrote an earnest, dramatic and not quite poetic a reaction to Miss OHanlons query. In number short conditions he assured her that certainly Santa Claus, or at minimum the strong nature and meaning of Saint Nicholass image were as true as whatever else on earth [[|cosmetology program]] .  
-Though at the time it ran in the Ny Sun it was but the seventh editorial on its page, this candid, lively and touching response would go on to locate its way into the hearts and Christmases of thousands of people, spanning several decades considering that the 1890s.  
-In reality both letter and its response are published in oodles of papers world wide annually, a tribute and testimony to Virginias, Francis Churches and Santa Clauss contribution to the wonder, amazing beauty and wonder of Christmas.
