One Mother’s View of Christmas

“We enjoy the day because it is the most exquisite enjoyment to see our children happy,” wrote Susa Young Gates of Christmas. “But if any but a mother can enjoy getting to bed at the small hours of the night after many and weary hours of the morning, and then be awakened by the children’s shouts, the noise of tom-toms, and tin whistles, with sickly forecasts of the future superinduced by the sight of handfuls of candy going down the tender throats of children, I say it requires a mother’s great, big, unselfish heart to rejoice in these sundry sights and sounds.”
