The Iowa Homemaker: Volume 37, Issue 5
Beginning early this month and continuing until the end of the Christmas season, the department stores will be crowded with children flocking to Toyland to see what Santa has in store for them. There will be dolls and doll houses, space-suits, stuffed toys and in one particularly congested area, accurately scaled model trains.
How I think of home today! Home-warm climate, heavy rains, gorgeous sunset and moonlight, the mountains, the sea, the folks-Sierra Leone.
The pungent odor of seasonal foods, the glamour of familiar surroundings in holiday dress, and the excitement of planning extra-special surprises- these are part of Christmas.
Art and sentiment are carefully combined by the highest standards of style and good taste into a form of expression that enjoys universal acceptance - greeting cards.
