HANG STOCKINGS, TOO ' French children hang up their Blockings Just <is do children in the United States. But they are perhaps more careful in selection of the stockings to be hung, and in printing their names to be attached to each stocking so that there may be no mistake about who gets what gift, when Peve Noel comes down the chimney, lust as Santa. Claus does south of the Great Lakes. Older people have their real Christmas season is a three-week affair m> here In French Caimda, the quintuplets arc not, at nil out of order If their Christmas festival starts a little early.

CALLANDER, Out.— Though Christmas is still some weeks away, the .Christmas spirit and atmosphere have already taken possession, of the nursery where the five little Dionne girls nre preparing con. So that you may see Christmas pictures of the children on Christmas Day. it Is necessary to take the pictures in advance. This makes Christmas-time really a season instead of just a day nt the .'nursery. So the wrapping of presents, the cutting of two 'fine Christmas trees. Hie appearance of the red Santa Clans uniform, together with Hie deep blanket of snow that has for some time covered, the countryside, all make up a rea holiday atmosphere. The children don't tire of it The only effect will be to lessei the chance of nervous disturbance when the big day conies. They'll be used to tlie festive amosphere, and "lake it in their slride." IT'S DAY FOR CHILDREN Christinas here among the French-Canadians is largely for the children. For older people. Christmas is chiefly, a religious holiday. With the older children, they nil turn out for a solemn midnight mass on Christmas Eve. Tlie old folks have their fun later, on New Year's Day and on Jan. 6. which is called "La Fete des Rols." or the Feast of Kings. The Dionne quintuplets am still n bit young to lake part in one of Ihe Important pre-Christinas ceremonies common among the French. . . That is the custom of writing notes asking for presents, and attaching them lo the strings of kites on some windy day before Christmas. Tlie children believe thai their letters by this Informal r.i L mnil " cv en«i«Uy reach tlie Child Jesus.

REUNION' 1 ON-NEW YEAR'S New Year, when the older people exchange, gifts, is Ihe lime for 'amily reunions, rnlher than Christmas, which is especially for lie younger children. Tlie Feast if the Kings on arsely for the ,grown-up folks. FAMILY TO BE REUNITED Around a large Christmas tree in the dining room nf the nursery, we I lope lo have for the first time a .complete reunion of the whole Dionne family, including all.. 11 children.
