You might as well not believe in fairies . . . “No Santa Claus! Thank God, he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.” — Francs P. Church “Nobody shoots at Santa Claus.” — Alfred E.
