This year, it is even more beautiful because the background appointments have been increased— J with over six hundred red and green lights blinking from thirty-four tall Christmas trees. On the lawn of the Thompson home, the enormous evergreen tree is again brightly glowing with over a thousand multi-colored lights. And, to further increase the gaiety, three smaller trees are similarly lighted. Last year, large groups visited the nativity scene — as word spread regarding its beauty. And this year, the patio will again be open to the public from six until nine o'clock each evening. During these hours, Cnristmas carols are played over an amplifier.

She keeps a date book in her purse and schedules herself for every hour. We have very little home life because she never lias time to cook a meal or to spend an evening at home. Our phone rings constantly with her club business and she thinks this is popularity. When night conies she is so keyed up she has to take pills to sleep. Anv suggestions? HER HUSBAND DK.-VR IirSBAND: Make nn appointment with her for nn emergency "StatP-Of-Thc-Fiim- Hy" meeting. Let the. first order of business he your list of complaints with regard to her clubbing your marriage to n pulp. Only when slir realizes that you wont stand for it will she ease off. Otherwise, YOU had better resign yourself to being last on Iter agenda forever. • * DEAR ABBY: How about this'.' My brother's wife phoned me and said. " We have some Christmas gifts for you and your family. Come and get them." They have a car, too, and they live less than ten minutes from us. I didn't want any bad feelings, so I didn't tell her off, I just said, "Thank you." and never picked them up. Now she is mad anyway. What would you have done? STUBBORN DEAR STUBBORN: If you had lii'ctl sincere in not wanting "bad leelings," you should , have picked up the gifts and j kept quiet. : DEAR ABBY: Our daughter, ' who is VI. was invited to a i slumber pariy at a girl friend's ! house.

As we understand it. | the girls let them in and \ let them in and seemed to en! joy their company, hut later on I they got rowdy and more boys I came, and the police had to be j called. We later learned that the parents of the girl who [ gave the party did not sleep at home. They slept at some friend's home so the girls could have an extra bedroom. Our daughter is invited to another slumber party. Her father says if we call girl who's says I hey right. (Mir it we call the be like saying her. What do suv, the she s all w she can't go.
