Merry Christmas

Posted in mousie at 8:35 am by Anonymouse

I know more people (4) with a birthday of September 11th than any other one day, so I had to go back and check something.  I found out that 9/11 is approximately 38 weeks from Christmas. 

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

I bet Virginia’s birthday was September 11th.

    I’ve had company, so I’m finally checking back in.
