Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.  Don't you see?  It's not just Kris that's, on trial, it's everything he stands for.  It's kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles.
Miracle on 34th Street is one of my many favorite Christmas movies.  Each Christmas season, I try to make time in my very busy, crazy, hectic life schedule to see this movie.  The above quote is one of the reasons I make time to see this movie.  I have always believed in Santa Claus and I will always believe in the kindness and joy and love and all the other intangibles which Santa represents. 

In our corner cupboard sits Chalkware Santa's.

American children call him Santa Claus


In the United Kingdom he is called Father Christmas

Ahh, AppleJack Santa received my Christmas letter.  He is bearing gifts and has a heavy sack full.

That's not lumps of coal in that bag?  Have you been talking to AppleJack?

Another favorite line from Miracle on 34th Street:  "Oh, Christmas isn't just a day, it's a frame of mind."


  1. You have a wonderful Santa collection.
