"Edna* had a beautiful (Christmas) tree this year and a good program.
 Santa Claus came in with a lot of bell ringing and Dean stayed close
to mamma.  He didn't know if he liked the old man or not, until Santa
gave him an orange, a popcorn ball and a sack of candy and nuts.  
Helen Blackburn, Anna Vestly, and Gerty Bedell were the most
popular girls when the dancing started."

Last of the Hahn's Peak Homesteaders by Rose Wheeler, 1973,

*Edna is school teacher, Edna Trullinger, and a sister to my mother's
(Catherine Hartt Keffeler's) aunt Etta (Spragg) McCarger.
