Quote of the Day

Jennifer didn't expect to enjoy Christmas, she didn't see how anyone could in this blazing sun; but Mrs. Eliot said that although she was a lover of snow and robins, nobody more so, it was certainly much easier to do one's shopping in the comfort of the sunnier weather; and the others all said loudly that Christmas was Christmas, and it didn't make any difference what the weather was like, and at least in this climate you were spared the worry of a last-minute cold coming on you and cheating you out of all the festivities.

From VENTURE TO SOUTH AFRICA, Chapter 10, Christmas Holidays.
