Conversational Christmas 'Yes Virginia' Coasters

Something unique for the Christmas table!

A fantastic stocking stuffer or unique Secret Santa gift.

A set of 6 different coasters that re-tell an editorial first published in 1897, in the New York Sun hand printed on an 1892 Chandler and Price letterpress.

Coasters are numbered 1-6 so your family and friends can take turns at re-telling the whole story around the Christmas table!

'Yes, Virginia, There is a Santa Claus' was the headline that appeared over a New York Sun editorial on September 21, 1897. Written by Francis P. Church in response to Virginia O’Hanlon’s letter to the editor. The response embodies the Christmas Spirit.
