New York City, 1897. A little girl named Virginia O’Hanlon loves Christmas more than anything else in the world. But when a schoolyard bully challenges her belief in Santa Claus, Virginia embarks on a quest across the city to prove he is real. With her best friend Ollie in tow, Virginia meets everyone from an overeager librarian to a Scraggly Santa raising money for the poor. Finally her father inspires her to write a letter to the New York Sun newspaper, claiming “If you see it in the Sun, it’s so.” Based on the true story of the most famous newspaper editorial of all time, Yes, Virginia is a charming and heartwarming tale about believing in the true spirit of Christmas. - Voices by Neil Patrick Harris, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alfred Molina, and Beatrice Miller (Toy Story 3)

Is this the same Virginia from

History made relevant
The most charming thing about this little feature is that it is based on a true story. Perhaps the greatest newspaper editorial ever written. But the contemporary design and attitude make it simultaneously current and modern, not like one of those scratchy old movies from 1930. (Which aren't bad in their own right.). The stories that make Christmas "classics" are wonderful because they are eclectic and different - A Charlie Brown Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, a Christmas Story, the Rudolf thing with Burl Ives. Kids watch them over and over again as they grow up. It's too early to tell but it seems to me like this could be one of those things.
It was a awsome movie
