"I am 8 years old.
Some of my friends say there is no Santa Claus.
Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?"
- Virginia O' Hanlon
Dear Virginia -
Your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the scepticism of a sceptical age. They do not believe in anything except what they see.
Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. And, just so your sceptical little friends don't fill your little head with doubt anymore, here's an inside video of what his toy factory looks like.
(Video from the excellent, visually stunning documentary "Manufactured Landscapes". Well worth hunting down, if you haven't had the chance...)
