Virgie ... this is a skeptical age. People don't believe in things they can't comprehend. But to say there's no Santa Claus? You might as well say there are no heroes. Some among us inspire childlike faith and wonder - they become more than people or even legends ... they become ideals. Ideals are bigger than any person, and we need them. They speak to what's best in us.
There's a veil covering the unseen world which not even the united strength of the strongest that ever lived can tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance - can push aside that curtain and picture the beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real?
There's nothing more real or more lasting.
Yes, Virginia. As sure as generosity and devotion exist to give life joy ... there is a Santa Claus.
I told you I was a sucker for superhero Holiday comics. From the Marvel Holiday Special 2005.
