The meaning of Christmas in Latin: a perfect gift!
Please tell me the truth, is there a Santa Claus?" On September 21, 1897, the minds and hearts of two people met and in that meeting created magic that has survived more than a century.

Virginia O'Hanlon's earnest question set New York Sun editor Francis Pharcellus Church to writing. Church's reply, a testimony to the existence of Santa Claus, on the marvels of the unseen but very real world of wonder, are now a part of Christmas lore.

This edition offers a translation into Latin of the text of Church's well-known editorial. The Latin text is handsomely scripted and charmingly illustrated.

Special Features

* New Latin translation, in ornate script with decorated capitals
* All new, full-color, charming illustrations for the Latin text
* English text on dual-language (English-Latin) pages in easy-to-read type, to aid translation of Latin
