Yes, Virgina: The Story Behind the Story Behind the Moon

Merry Christmas Gerard. I am very happy that God issued you a return ticket. Thank you for everything you have set before my eyes. God Bless.

Santa not only lives, he is very busy this year.

Gerard: May all the blessings of Christmas continue to come your way, although I don't know what better gift you could receive than the gift of your life given back to you and to all of us who continue to receive the gifts of your thoughts and writing.

May you continue to full recovery and have the best of the New Year as well.

God Bless You!

Of course there's a Santa Claus. I'm tracking him right now on the NORAD website.

You won another Christmas in a lottery you didn't even know you were playing.

That's quite a thing. You made my, and my family's, Christmas just a little bit better with that story.

Now go watch Christmas Story with the rest of us. Somethings are too precious to be earned with good works.

Ever wonder whatever became of Virginia? The answer is here.

What a delight to read!! How nice to be reminded we are not mere animals. Thank you for sharing the reality of Santa Claus with us. Merry Christmas.

I've always loved that editorial comment, but I've liked it even more since the birth of my daughter, who just happens to be named Virginia.

Yeah tell your kids a lie about a fat magic elf so they can love and anticipate him and forget Jesus. Great idea.

Merry Christmas to all! (And to Dave at Happy Acres, whose site I miss very much!)

May the New Year bring happiness and prosperity to all!

I believe we are all blessed not only in the Christmas spirit but in what seems to me a very unique past several weeks of positive events.

This blog is by far my favorite and has been for several years now. Thank you Gerard!

Merry Christmas to all!
