Time to make handmade Christmas gifts, that is. Everyone’s getting a Laura Ingalls Wilder Christmas this year:
In the morning they all woke up almost at the same moment. They looked at their stockings, and something was in there. Santa Claus had been there. Alice and Ella and Laura in their red flannel nightgowns and Peter in his red flannel nightshirt, all ran shouting to see what he had brought. In each stocking there was a pair of bright red mittens, and there was a long, flat stick of red-and-white striped peppermint candy, all beautifully notched along one side.
They were all so happy they could hardly speak at first.
In other words, everyone’s getting the modern equivalent of mittens and peppermint.
