Betty MacDonald's Christmas


Mathilda, we enjoyed St. Lucia's day very much.

This will be a very special Betty MacDonald Christmas surprise.

Reading Mary Bard Jensen's  letters with several family pics and new ones of  beloved Gammy will be a wonderful Christmas gift.

Betty MacDonald, Mary Bard Jensen and whole Bard family celebrated Christmas in an unique way.

I don't know whether Betty MacDonald and Mary Bard Jensen ever  heard of swedish artist and author Carl Larsson.

It's such  a great combination looking at Carl Larsson's artwork and reading Betty MacDonald's Christmas stories a the same time or listening to Wolfgang Hampel's unique Betty MacDonald interviews.

One of my favourites are Betty MacDonald's Nancy and Plum and Carl Larsson's artwork 'Britta with candles and apples' and Wolfgang Hampel's  very funny interview with Betty MacDonald's sister Alison Bard Burnett.

I wonder how does Mr.Tigerli celebrate Christmas?

Hoping he'll be able to find a better personal assistant than the former one.

Good luck, Mr. Tigerli!

Wishing you a white and peaceful Christmas although we are really very depressed because of these tragic news from U.S.A.
