    Merry Christmas to the whole Blind Pig family from a very warm Christmas in Ohio. It’s almost like Easter weather. Certainly no snow with temps in the upper 50’s. Have really enjoyed learning so much about Appalachia and all your customs. Blessings to you all for the coming year.

    I got here a little late today. I was in bed all day and will probably go back after this. I just wanted to wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
    Dusty and I had already gotten our presents which we didn’t bother to wrap. I got an Alvarez AP70E with a Pevy Amp and he got a Ruger AR556. That is way more than either of us deserve but it’s too late now.

    Merry Christmas to all the Blind Pig and the Acorn readers and Tipper and family, from a wet and soggy with snow in the mountains Oregon. You’ve helped make this a special year for me and I wish you all the best for 2016.

    Tipper,
    A blessed Christmas to you and yours. I hope your season has been as joyous as ours, with family at the center of it. Our 6-year old granddaughter and her parents are with us, and what a wonderful time it is! And we shouldn’t forget the real reason for the holiday. Merry Christmas, and best wishes for the coming year.

    Dear Tipper, sweet Katie and family,
    Wishing you all a very merry Chrisrmas and Happy New Year! Although we’ve never met in person I think we creatures of our upbringing and culture. My family has lived in East Tennessee for all my life. I’ve learned so much about Appalachia and how blessed we should feel to live and appreciate this miracle of Gods creation.
    Katie keep making your jewelry and when I need a treat or gift I’ll check in with Stamey Creek Creations.
    We are very very wet today but no storms! Take that back I heard the thunder roll again.
    Love,Joy,Peace,
    Carol Rosenbalm

    Merry Christmas Tipper. Thank you for all of your informative tidbits that make my days just a little bit brighter. When I was growing up in Charlotte in the ’50’s, Santa Claus used to leave a cardboard box under the Red Cedar tree with Tangerines, nuts, and oranges. It was the only time all year that we got those delicacies.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family and all of the Blind Pig and the Acorn fans.
    I read the article below in the paper this morning. It was written in 1897. I have read it many times, but I never get tired of reading it. If you think it might be of interest to your readers I hope you will post it.
    DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old.
    Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
    Papa says, ‘If you see it in THE SUN it’s so.’
    Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?
    VIRGINIA O’HANLON.
    115 WEST NINETY-FIFTH STREET.
    VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.
    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 eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.
    Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.
    You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.
    No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.
