Starting December 1,2010, Mont Blanc are asking you to be part of this festive season.Each day they will be sharing a story until Christmas Eve. The idea as all of Mont Blanc’s campaigns are very creative and people oriented. The inspiration for this event was by Virginia O’Hanlon’s timeless query, a story of an 8 year old girl who was wondering about the existence of Santa Claus. Her story and the reply she received have become part of American History and culture.
“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 (in a written letter to the editor of The New York Sun in 1897) The reply she got was amazing , i have to share it , he says “Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." And went to explain that "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."
