German Christmas customs, Glendale parties

Here she describes the Christmas customs of Nuremberg, Germany. "On Christmas Eve the Christ Kind delivers gifts to the children on a golden chariot pulled by white horses." She writes, "The children remain in their rooms, their eyes tightly closed. They never dream of peeping, for if they did, the Christ Kind would blow out their eyes."

On this same page, there is another article about parties in the village of Glendale. She also mentions Van Nes Allen, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Stanley Allen. Van Nes Allen was planning a trip to the American Cape Mt. Mission in Liberia. He wrote a book about this trip called "I Found Africa" that was published in 1939.
