Here comes Christmas with its almost unbearable excitement. The stockings crammed with goodies and toys, important packages in gaudy be-ribboned paper-the tree a wonder of tinsel and bright ornaments. To help you make merry, in these pages you will find ideas for happy giving. The heart of Christmas is the shining quality of warm friendliness that reaches beyond the narrow safe island of a family to other families and peoples. It's the loving kindness that can live all year long. It's the Christmas spirit tucked into the gifts and trimmings that makes Christmas.
