If there were no Santa Claus ... we should have no enjoyment except in sense and sight ...

Is there a Santa Claus? In 1897, the reporter answered a question of a little girl sent to "the New York Sun" like this. It is not true that everything you cannot see is a thing you made in your head. A truly precious thing is made up of something invisible. From "Is there a Santa Claus? (translated by Taeko Nakamura)."
