JFK: Not Even Soviet Threat Can Stop Santa

Saturday, 20 Dec 2014 12:25 PM

The Kennedy Presidential Library wants to remind the world that not even the threat of thermonuclear conflict can stop Santa Claus from making his rounds.

The library has republished the text of a 1961 letter from President John F. Kennedy reassuring a little girl who was worried about possible Soviet nuclear tests at the North Pole.

Kennedy's letter to 8-year-old Michelle Rochon says he shares her concerns, not just for the fate of Santa but all people. The president added that he had talked to Santa just a day earlier and all is well.

The John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum reissued the letter Friday as a holiday greeting on YouTube.
