Miracle on 2nd Street; the Spirit of Christmas is alive in Humboldt

Apologies to George Seaton, but Miracle on 34th Street would not make sense in Humboldt. If you have not seen this Christmas classic, I would suggest renting it on a Humboldt rainy day and it will warm your heart.

Yesterday, something happened that touched me deeply. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in Humboldt County. Santa, you know who you are. Thank you for the gift of hope and faith which is priceless.
