"Santa Claus is nothing but a warped reconstruction of a religious legend!"
"How do you know that?" Luna's detached tones grated on Hermione's already frayed nerves.
"Do you have any scientific evidence that supports the existence of Santa Claus?" the other woman demanded.
Luna laughed; a high-pitched, silvery laugh that still startled Hermione.
Hermione huffed. "What is so funny?"
The laugh cut off abruptly. "Do you have faith in anything, Hermione?" Luna asked. The look in her eyes was sharper than Hermione had ever seen.
"I believe in what I can see."
Luna gave her a look of utter pity.
