Joyful the Morning, The Story of an English Family Christmas
Joyful the Morning The Story of an English Family Christmas Author:Nora S. Unwin Christmas had been on the way ever since October when, in solemn ceremony, Patty and Penny with Mother and Cook had stirred the plum pudding mixture and made their wishes. Now, with only four days to go to The Day itself, they could scarcely wait to see if their wishes would be fulfilled. But there were obligations, too - a pincushion to make ... more »for an aunt, a woven mat to finish for Grandmother, a Christmas play to rehearse with their brother Geoff. And their large family of dolls must have their Christmas, too!
In this warm and lively story of English family life in the first quarter of the century, children and grown-ups share together in loved traditions and time-honored customs of the Christmas season. Through the eyes of the eight-year-old twins, Patty and Penny, deeper meanings come to life. Mother and Dad, older brothers and sister, cousins, aunts and uncles all join in the happy anticipation, busy preparations, minor crises and joyous surprises of "Christmas at Granny's," and all th efun this entails.
A children's holiday story, for all ages and year-round reading pleasure.
