- Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus (Words, Sayings, and Slogans)
"What was I thinking? Christmas in Neptune is, was, and always will be about the trappings; the lights and the tinsel they use to cover up the sordidness, the corruption. No, Veronica, there is no Santa Claus."
The classic Christmas movie Miracle on 34th Street was based on a real-life incident where a girl wrote to the Editorial Page of the New York Sun in 1897, asking if there was a Santa Claus, and the editor...well, he lied. Veronica knows better. And if there was a Santa, she would probably tell him just where he can stick his coal. And it's not a pleasant place.
