When Christmas comes, parents will be asked by their children: "do you really have Santa Claus?" what can we do? Saying "yes" seems to deceive children; saying "no" will break their children's good wishes! Let's take a look at the best answer
Christmas Eve, 1897, New York, USA. There is an 8-year-old girl named Virginia, very distressed: because everyone says that there is no Santa Claus in the world.
For an 8-year-old girl, 'there's no Santa in the world,' that's a big deal! Virginia wrote a letter to the sun in New York.
I'm eight years old. Some of my friends say there is no Santa in the world. I asked my father, and he said, "go to the sun." the newspaper said, "yes, I do.". So, please, tell me, does Santa really have one?
Virginia & middot; o'hanraun (115 West Hanlong street, New York)
How could the famous Sun newspaper answer such absurd questions?
The letter was left in a corner of the office, covered with dust, until an editor named church found it. He wrote back to Virginia solemnly and put it on the sun.
Virginia, your friends are not right. In this age of doubting everything, they all have the habit of doubting. They don't believe anything unless they see it. They think they can understand everything. Virginia, all brains, both adult and child, are very small. In our vast universe, human intelligence is like an ant, and the intelligence needed to understand all knowledge and truth is like the boundless world around this ant.
Yes, Virginia, there is indeed a Santa Claus. He exists, just as love, generosity and dedication exist. You know they are everywhere, which makes your life better and happier. Well, how boring the world would be without Santa Claus! It would be as boring as without Virginia. In that case, there will be no childlike faith, no poetry, no romance that we can tolerate. Then we will have no enjoyment, neither to see nor to feel. In that way, the eternal light that filled the world from the very beginning will be extinguished.
Don't believe in Santa! You might as well not believe in elves. You can ask your father to hire some people to watch every chimney on Christmas Eve to see if they can catch Santa Claus. But even if you don't see Santa Claus coming down the chimney, what can you prove? No one sees Santa Claus, that doesn't mean there is no Santa Claus. In this world, no one can see the most real things, whether he is a child or an adult. Have you ever seen elves dancing on the grass? Certainly not, but that doesn't prove that they don't exist. No one can imagine all those invisible miracles in the world.
We can open the baby's rattle and see what's inside to make it sound. But there is a veil that covers the invisible world. Even the strongest people, even the strongest people in the past, can't lift it. Only faith, poetry, love and romance can open the curtains for us and show us unparalleled beauty and glory. Is all this true? Ah, Virginia, there is nothing more real and lasting in the world.
There's Santa! Thank God! He's not only alive, he'll live forever. One thousand years from now, Virginia, or ten ten ten thousand years from now, will continue to bring joy to the hearts of children.
This "yes, Virginia" is an animated short film released on Christmas Eve of 2009 in the United States, adapted from real events.
The famous editorial of the sun, yes, Virginia, Santa Claus is true, although it was placed in a humble position, it quickly attracted the attention of readers and was circulated to each other & hellip;
And the life of Virginia, the 8-year-old girl, was changed by this letter. She married in 1910, and her daughter was abandoned by her husband shortly after she was born. But she was not defeated. She went on to study, got her doctorate, and became a teacher for more than 20 years. When she retired, she became the principal.
In her later years, she said, the reply she received at the age of eight changed her life. She has received many letters from children. The most frequently asked question is: does Santa really exist?
Every time she received these letters, she would reply to the children like church, and attach the letter she received that year. Although she has white hair, but always believe that Santa Claus really exists.
As the sun wrote in its reply, it is the love and honesty of the world that makes your life beautiful and happy.
