Is there a Santa Claus?

December 23rd, 2010

It just wouldn’t be the holidays without giving a quick read to what has become the most printed, reprinted, interpreted, and published editorial in the world. It still brings a happy holiday tear to my eye – enjoy!

*Originally published in THE SUN – New York in 1897! Written by Francis Pharcellus

DEAR EDITOR: I am 8 years old.
Some of my little friends say there is no Santa Claus.
Papa says, ‘If you see it in THE SUN it’s so.’
Please tell me the truth; is there a Santa Claus?

VIRGINIA O’HANLON.
115 WEST NINETY-FIFTH STREET.

VIRGINIA, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except [what] they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men’s or children’s, are little. In this great universe of ours man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect, as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge.

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The eternal light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished.

Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies! You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if they did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that’s no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world.

You may tear apart the baby’s rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived, could tear apart. Only faith, fancy, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, VIRGINIA, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding.

No Santa Claus! Thank God! he lives, and he lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood.

-Francis Pharcellus

The Chirstmas Spirit Giveaway

December 16th, 2010

As I get older, I find it harder and harder to get in the Christmas spirit – something that I’m sure is shared by many others out there. I was watching the most recent episode of Glee (guilty pleasure!) and Mr. Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison, summed up this feeling in a very elegant way (I’ll paraphrase in a very non-elegant fashion). When we’re young, there is a lot of magic about the holiday – Santa Claus, the Tree, Decorations, Presents… but as we move past adolescence into adult hood, we outgrow the sensation of the holiday. That magical feeling disappears – maybe we feel we’re too big to enjoy in the childhood experience. Too often, along with that loss, we forget the importance and meaning of Christmas. As we become middle aged, we’d do anything – almost anything – to get that feeling back and remember what it is like to fully be in the Christmas Spirit.

As we all know – the true meanings behind Christmas should be felt year round – kindness, good will to our fellow women and men and most of all, giving of ourselves. But if we have trouble finding those meanings – in the midst of the holiday season, no less – then it becomes very difficult to carry that with us throughout the year.

We’d like to help everyone get in the Christmas Spirit this year. We’re going to give away Three Christmas Cake Party Packs (three gifts symbolizes something! :) ) to three of our readers, customers or fans who share with all of us either a photo of their holiday decorations, a Christmas party photo, a fond memory about Christmas or a short piece of prose about what Christmas means to them. We’re also going to donate three birthday cakes to a soldier overseas in the names of our three winners through our Operation: Birthday Cake program!

We’d love to see and hear what gets you in the spirit and hope that through our shared experiences, we can make that feeling stronger and help it last through out the year.

THE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT GIVEAWAY!

WHAT TO DO:
* Post a photo on our FACEBOOK FAN PAGE with your holiday decorations or at a Christmas party with friends and family
* Comment on this post with a memory about Christmas, or write about what Christmas means to you
* Enter as often as you’d like with those rules!

WHAT YOU CAN WIN:
* We’ll give away 3 Christmas Party Packs – each pack will include 4 of our 7″ gourmet brownie cakes to serve to friends and family for the holidays: Chocolate Mint Chip, Caramel & Pecans, Cookies & Cream and a Triple Mochachino Brownie. PLUS, we’ll put the three winners names on our donation list and send birthday cakes to soldiers serving overseas on their behalf. Give & receive!

DEADLINE: All entries must be submitted by Monday, 12/20 at 5pm so that we can process the winners and send out party packs in time for Christmas.

HOW WE’LL DECIDE: It will be tough to say one memory or photo is better than the other – Christmas isn’t about competition. Each entry will be assigned a number based on time of entry and we’ll use RANDOM.org to select the 3 winners from all valid entries.

Thanks for reading and we hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season!

Blogger Reviews of Bake Me A Wish! Cakes – Another Chance to WIN!!

December 9th, 2010

We’ve had several bloggers receive cakes this month to give us their honest opinions on what they thought of our gifts and service. Once again – we’ve received accolades! Take a moment to read the reviews yourself and find out how you can with the cake of your choice! Remember we’re perfect for birthday cake delivery & holidays cakes!

LAUGHING LINDSEY:

I was able to receive their delicious chocolate mousse torte cake to review that is pictured above! This cake is honestly to die for! It’s some of the best I’ve ever had! My mouth is watering just remembering it. I was very impressed with Bake Me A Wish all around. The cake arrived in perfect condition, in an adorable box. The cake just looked delicious! The cake actually arrived at my house while I was on campus. I had to force my parents to not eat it until after I had a chance to get home and take pictures! Haha! I’m so evil! : )

LITTLE YAYAS:

I had the chance to experience first hand just how amazing Bake Me A Wish! Cakes really are.
My Bake Me A Wish experience started when my cake arrived fast and packaged so that my cake would be in the same condition as it was shipped. I opened the shipping package to find Bake Me A Wish!’s beautiful signature gift box. Inside the signature gift box was a scrumptious Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie Cake. (EDITORS NOTE: FREE 2-DAY SHIPPING ALL MONTH LONG!)

What Cake Flavors are GREAT for kids?

December 7th, 2010

As you may or may not know, our gift cakes and delivery service were originally designed for birthdays, holidays and corporate gifting for adults, but we’ve got the right cake to send to the children in your life too! To be sure, our cakes are GREAT to give to youngsters for their birthdays and the holidays – but you have to know WHICH cake to send!!

Why the right flavor? Our cakes most definitely have a sophisticated taste which may mean their not right for your target recipient. For example, our best selling Red Velvet Cake, may be a bit overwhelming for kids. It has a cream cheese frosting… now, I grew up a picky eater! I wouldn’t even touch cream cheese until well into my teens. Too rich! So – the red velvet may not exactly the best cake for a youngin’ – it’s taste is a bit too gourmet. So which cake? I’ve got two IDEAL cakes for you:

* The Boston Cream – I brought two of these home to a family Christmas party last year, along with a Red Velvet and and a Carrot cake. The Boston Cream was coveted by the kids in the family – most of them wanting more and more of it! “It’s all about the chocolate icing and the custard!”. Indeed, one of my favorite cakes in our roster!

* The Triple Chocolate Enrobed Brownie – What kid doesn’t like brownies? Our 7″ Brownie cake is perfect for kids birthdays combining fudge, milk chocolate and a little bit of dark chocolate (not too much!) for an amazing flavor combo. I’ve given away a few dozen of these cakes to New York City schools as classroom awards and they’ve been gobbled up!

Thanks for reading! Stay Sweet!
