Summary :
It has always existed. Over the centuries it has grown overweight and good-natured, but it remains like a fetish security blanket hidden secretly in the secret of the soul or under a corner of the pillow. left old Europe, engulfed in its miseries and intolerances and the new world has humanized it before merchandising it. It has become the symbol of the pleasure of living: the Church wanted to sacrifice it. Some have believed they could make him a parental vigilante, a somewhat sadistic Father Fouettard, a huckster or a deviant. But the dream and eternal childhood won the day. And for 50 years, La Poste has devoted its social role by giving it a secretariat and a first prestigious pen: Françoise Dolto. This book is for all those who have kept their childhood soul. It traces the history of Santa Claus since the dawn of time. He illustrates the trajectory of his love affair with the postmen of La Poste. It brings together an anthology of the most beautiful letters written, to him or to his ancestors, for more than a century. Above all, it expresses the magic of Christmas, the emotion and impatience that take hold of us every year when we wait for the big evening of December 24.
