Am I being selfish n this?" tfit at all. It Isn't a good idea to uproot a child at Christmas. On Christmas Eve a child likes to hang its slocking from his own fireplace He likes to go to sleep In his own oed and find his presents in the morning under his own tree. And half of the fun of the presents is showing them to his neighborhood friends. Furthermore, it I* important for each young family to have their own Christmas traditions. Cant' you explain to your uar-—and suggest that they come to your house for Crrlstmas, And that you make another holiday. such ai Thanksgiving, the Mmt when you go to their house? In their desire to keep on having Christmas at their house with all their children present, they have probably overlooked the fact that married children have the same wish for Christmas at home. They will probab)y see your point easily enough if you will explain It gently. It isn't a matter of not wanting to have Christmas at their house but just a matter of feeling that the time has come when it Is important to have Christmas at your house. elp Jilt MnAniial6 Walls Hospital Dismissed: Mrs. William Lott and baby.
