How Mrs. Santa Claus Saved Christmas - 1961

Don't you just love Christmas traditions?

Below you will find a very special Christmas story my mother read to us each year.  The date: December 1961.  It was cut out of the Family Circle Magazine.  It is in such tatters that I didn't dare take it out of the plastic sleeves.  I scanned it and enlarged as big as I could.  I hope you can read it. The illustrations are so sweet.

I hope you have special traditions you share with your family and that reading is one of them.

He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree. ~Roy L. Smith

Have a very merry Christmas!

A Doggone Special Christmas Message!

As Christmas draws near, I know you are extremely busy, but stop and enjoy the joy in this special Christmas video. It brings a sweet tear to my eye every time I watch it. It even got to my manly husband: "I've just got something in my eye."  lol

As Christmas began in the heart of God, let us complete that love by extending our hearts to others, including all of God's creatures. This coming year, I will be donating to a new organization - CAWS. Find out more at
