- FAMILY ACTIVITIES
- For Christmas, they did not have a Christmas tree. Grandparents lived with the family. Later got little cedar trees for Christmas. Gifts were mostly homemade toys. Decorated a small tabletop tree with balls and decorated dolls. Got small gifts like stockings, hair ribbons, and toothbrushes, because the family was poor. Had chicken, pies, and cakes on Christmas. Christmas dinners were at the farm and Thanksgiving dinners were at uncle's house. Family members brought food when they came over.
