So how does Santa deliver all those gifts?
The letter came from Italy, addressed “Babbo Natale,” but that was enough to reach this frozen, far-north address, along with hundreds of thousands like it from around the world.
Santa for her sisters

Santa Claus can still go ho-ho-ho in Bangsamoro
Santa Claus can go ho-ho-ho even in Bangsamoro. You can have a pig in the backyard, and eat it, too. Christians can eat lechon there. Or raise pigs. No problem. The assurance comes from Ghazali Jaafar, vice chair for political affairs of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) that has signed a preliminary agreement to end the Muslim insurgency in Mindanao by establishing a new autonomous region there, to be called Bangsamoro.
Santa’s Little Helpers Go Online
We seem headed on a collision course with Christmas, given the speed and frenzy of its arrival this year. If you’re one of those über organized people who do their holiday shopping in August and are done by September, we both hate and envy you.

When is the right time to tell children the truth about Santa Claus? For my own children, the telling was provoked by a question from a daughter—an innocent question that elicited a guilty, if untimely, confession from a parent whose own enthusiasm for the whole charade had been on the wane.
The Arctic wallflower
It is late as we write this. We’ve been on standby for a call from somewhere close to the North Pole. No, the call won’t be coming from Santa Claus, but rather from Ezra Miller. Yes, Ezra Miller, who brought chills down our spines when he played Tilda Swinton’s crazy son in “We Need To Talk About Kevin.” Miller is most remembered for recently playing the brilliant and tender-hearted Patrick in “The Perks of Being a Wallflower.”
