The story was based on the 1897 true story of Virginia O'Hanlon, an 8 years old girl, who inspired the most famous newspaper editorial of all time by asking :"Is there a Santa Claus?" Virginia O'Hanlon had always loved Christmas until someone tells her and the other children that Santa Claus doesn't exist. Not sure what to believe, Virginia and her friend, Ollie, venture into the streets of New York City to uncover the truth and she decides to write a letter to the New York Sun newspaper to find out if there really was a Santa Claus. A veteran newspaper man Francis Pharcellus Church answered her question.
