Yes, Virginia, there *is* a coddle!

Okay, when I came back from a trip to Dublin many years ago, I told everyone who would listen how much in love I was with coddle. My Irish doorman gave me a she's-lost-her-mind look and claimed never to have heard of it.

Glad there are others suffering from the same delusion.

But who is Virginia? Chris Day (talk) 02:29, 29 October 2007 (CDT)

Well, you're not as "Americanized" as was feared. That's a play on Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus, often read at Christmas in the U.S. Aleta Curry 04:07, 29 October 2007 (CDT)

Well that's a relief. Or maybe it's not popular anymore? Chris Day (talk) 23:02, 2 November 2007 (CDT)

Possibly not; I haven't been in the U.S. at Christmastime for years. It's very old--turn of the 20th Century or maybe 19th Century even; was based on an editorial response to a little girl's letter to a New York City (?) paper. If you get a chance, read it. Aleta Curry 23:13, 2 November 2007 (CDT)
