A Sauk Rapid! pioneer recalled it In his memoirs. / "There was no spare money with which to buy presents, We always hung tip our stockings but got nothing in them but some cheap candy and raisins. They Had Apples "One year father determined to give us and the other children of the village a little better Christmas than usual So he went out to the woods and cut enough fire wood to exchange in St. Cloud for a barrel of apples." "Then he Invited all of the youngsters to his house, fashioned a puppet stage In the sitting room "and we celebrated the day In a very happy way.*' Yet the holiday festival Was not so rough-hewn for all in Minnesota in the state's infancy. Different In CtttM In St. Paul, Stillwater-and other large early settlements there was an elegance of style and cuisine strikingly different from the hard austerity of the frontier. Chfiitmtf (tnuritors at one hotel ban In It, Paul could choose 'rom a menu of turkey, chicken, frosted hami, oyster and lobster soup, sardines, pastries, sauces, hotel b*Q to St. Paul could choose,, fo pecans and let cream. In Fillmore County, where there was no Mississippi Rlverboat to deliver holiday tasties, the land around them furnished Christmas dinner for most of the pioneers. There was prairie chicken, venison and vegetables, and sometimes Indians invited to Join In the meal would bring a delicacy of their own — bear meat. Other Good food Boiled vegetables, baked pork and beans, cranberries, cheese and nuts were common holiday fare. Christmas was typically a quiet and holy, day for a Minnesota family 100 years ago., Pr*«enta were exchanged by. some and children usually received gifts of some kind, if ortly the popcorn balls, nuts and candy they found in their stocking; Thanksgiving Day was more truly festive in those days and New Years Day was a. more popular time in many towns for the exchanging of gifts. Sleigh Bells Jlagled The jingle of sleigh bells on a whiter ride carried, the unmis- takeable sound of Christmas, though, and the sound wal never more pleasureable In Minnesota than a century ago. It was "away we go with bells jingling, horses blowing ieycles •om their nostrils and ladies alternately laughing and screaming," one of the merrymakers recalled years later. Sleigh rides from St. Paul often followed a route along the Mississippi, past St. Anthony falls. Fort Snelllng was another favorite objective. Clergymen traveled busily during the holiday season trying to bring religious services to as many* settlements as possible. Sometimes it was a rough go. There was a Swedish Lutheran pastor who preached in St. Paul on the Sunday before Christmas in 1858, in Scandia two days before the holiday and In East and West Union on Christmas Day. Bis Christmas sermon took him longer than usual to prepare because he was forced to atop at a Shakopee saloon and was distracted by chorus of singing drunks.
