"Every year I'm simply exhausted when It's over. And this Sear I haven't done any shopping at all — and Chrklnia.s only a month a w a y! Prices arc so high, and nothing you ?v )uy looks like tho V- money you put '-• into it." And so on. Any w oman who is rjeginning to think and talk like that a month before Christmas Ruth Mlllett needs to have a little conference with herself. Why is she making Chrhtmns such a burden to herself? Is she giving gilts to please mid as a small token of the Christmas spirit, or to make an impression? Is she crowding too much social llle into a week or two accepting invitations she doesn't care aoout simply because everybody else seems to rush around during the holidays? Christmas Simplicity This business of spending two months to get ready for Christmas —and a month to get over it physically and several months to get. over It financially—isn't anything a family HAS to do. No matter what kind o! a social spectacle a lot of people make out of Christmas, any family that wants to, can keep its own Christmas celebration simple enough so that it lias some meaning. No one Is forced to turn a celebration, that should be a Joy, Into u dread Job.
