"The wiser idea is to give him his toys gradually throughout the year, as he is ready for them and needs them. A young child should have a variety of play things. However, he'll only become distracted, destructive, and disorderly if too many toys are always within his reach. All he needs are a few at a time." Just as there are different types of toys for each age level, so there are toys that serve different purposes in each age group, Mrs. Davis points out.

Toys for babies should be selected primarily from the standpoint of safety. They should have no sharp edges, no loose parts small enough to be swallowed. Animals with eyes glued or pinned on, toys covered with poisonous paint or made of glass or china are also taboo. The best choice is something that can be washed when it becomes' soiled'.

At the peak of all this there was brought in the Yule log a relic, incidentally, of the Scandinavians' pagan worship of Thor. With a brand from last year's log the new one was fired. The light from these roaring flames would shine out through portals opened to the knocks of caroling and wassailing bands who, more often than not, were brought into the hall to eat of nutmeg cakes and brawn and mustard. 0.m wmrm mm. mm. m.m 5 r,ttt!0 - .

He was an elfish little old man who lived in the attic and was primarily concerned with the well-being of the cattle, keeping them quiet and contented, caring for them if the stable-hands neglected their duties.

Mr. and Mrs. Cards A perplexing etiquette problem in this season of sending greetings is that of how to sign husband-and-wife Christmas cards. ' There are two types of cards, formal and informal. Formal ones are usually engraved as a visiting card would be with Mr. and Mrs. Informal cards, printed or signed by hand, ordinarily follow this rule: It's best to have the husband's name first, the wife's second and the children's, if any, afterwards. For example, "John and Martha Jones and John Jr." If there are just husband and wife, the person signing the card writes his or her name second. Never send a card without a Mr., Mrs. or Miss Prefixed to the name of the person addressed; never use an initial for the first name. LOADS OF i TO M '0. occupants thereof.

G Early Christmas There is no mention of a Christian observance of December 25 as Christmas before the fifth century. There is, in fact, no record to indicate what date Jesus was born.
