Letters Santa Missed — Read This!


Every December for the past 15 years, an acting coach has honored two children whose notes to Santa Claus he found stuffed in his fireplace in his New York City apartment.  The 100-year old notes, written in children’s scrawl, were found during a renovation project. They hint at the poverty and hardships of a former Irish neighborhood in Manhattan 100-years ago.  The existence of the letters themselves is not remarkable, it is what they tell us that is.
