Verbena Daphne Brighton in Gissing Village Norfolk - mid December, the 1920's
from Nuts in May: memories of care-free days, page 101:
[The author and her siblings anticipate Christmas and write letters to Santa, who replies]
[My] sister feeling up the chimney dislodged a grubby piece of paper with unfamiliar writing.
I will come on Christmas eve, but put your stockings in the same place with the names on them. It is a bit cold up here.
With love from,
Please sing some carols.
We sat and sang with all our might about the sleigh bells ringing and had no doubt as to the reality of Santa Claus in those happy days, everything was fairyland.
