From Canon Owen Vigeon

Sir: When my eldest daughter was seven years old, we over-heard her instructing her kid brother on Christmas Eve in these words:

You see, Tim, Father Christmas is a game we children have to play with grown-ups, so that they won't be disappointed.

Are vicarages the last refuge of the Enlightenment?

Yours faithfully,

Owen Vigeon
