On the 110th
Anniversary of the New York Sun Editorial, Yes
Virginia, there is a Santa Claus,
many of my holiday visitors to Santaland will remember when Christmas
was more than electronics.
It was a holiday when people sat
around a black and white television and watched Christmas shows
from entertainers listened
to music on the radio.
Christmas is the only holiday where Santa Claus can get a glass
of milk and a plate of cookies at every child's house.
It's a time when people watch on
television the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and knew the Christmas
holiday season officially began when I arrived at the end of the
Parade, when the Christmas Tree was lit at Rockefeller Center, and
the Rockettes were performing their stage show at Radio City Music
Those were the days of reading Christmas
Christmas Carols sung
in the streets, a turkey cooking in the oven, egg
nog on the table, cookies
on a tray, a poinsettia in the window, a fire in the fireplace,
and the Christmas Tree decorated on Christmas Eve.
Although those days are gone for
the most part, Santaland will bring a small piece of that era back
to life. There will be cooking tips and recipes
for scores of holiday items. Plant care tips for indoor
holiday plants and cut flowers
