much like the other, as we look
back on them, that, unless we are
children, none seems to stand out
in our memory.
We know that there 'was a
Christmas tree and that, 'under:
neata and around it, were piled
a miscellaneous lot of packages and
that the children had a joyful time
opening them. But any details of the
scene are usually too elusive to give
us any particular pleasure that is,
unless we are among those who do
not let Christmases go by without
taking pictures .of the celebration.
Those who customarily do this
possess precious reminders of fcenes
that are entirely different each
year, chiefly because the principal
actors in them, the children, grow
and change. Ten .years ago Baby
Willie was delighted with a jack-in-the-box
but now It is young Master
Willie enthralled by his first elec
tric train. The1 picture comparison
of Willie oa these two Christmas
mornings Is a Joy to behold and, as
the years go by, these pictures be
come more and more precious.
