To Virginia’s Family, Santa Claus Is Still Real

To Virginia’s Family, Santa Claus Is Still Real | Christmas and Winter Holidays | Scoop.it
In 1897, 8-year-old Virginia O’Hanlon wrote her famous letter to The New York Sun asking, “Is there a Santa Claus?” Her descendants still spread the spirit of the answer.
Operation Santa Claus's insight:

For generations since, Miss O’Hanlon’s descendants have quietly become ambassadors of the Christmas spirit, crossing the country to appear at events honoring her, and reading the letter and the response to children in schools and to their own children at home. They keep “Yes, Virginia” coffee mugs in their kitchen cupboards, hang “Yes, Virginia” ornaments on their Christmas trees. Come December, their names and faces turn up in newspapers and on television programs around the world, as well as in the company newsletters of their various workplaces.

How to Alleviate Holiday Stress and Anger | Operation Santa Claus - Santa's Blog

How to Alleviate Holiday Stress and Anger | Operation Santa Claus - Santa's Blog | Christmas and Winter Holidays | Scoop.it
Much that is good about the Christmas holiday can be irretrievably lost due to stress, irritability and actual anger. Rather than feeling overcome and pinned down by emotions of irritability and dread, stop what you are doing and take a deep breath.
Operation Santa Claus's insight:

Rather than feeling overcome and pinned down by emotions of irritability and dread, stop what you are doing and take a deep breath. Stop looking at your watch. Turn off the news and turn on joyous Christmas music. Look around you and instead of noticing the crying child, find one who is young enough that seeing Christmas decorations for the first is quite magical to him or her. Look for the sheer joy in that little face. Look around you for something that reminds you of a special memory from Christmases past.
