Hereby presenting an excerpt from the novel The Birds’ Christmas Carol (1889) by Kate Douglas Wiggin. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by Katharine R. Wireman.
“Can I have the shutters open; and won’t you turn my bed a little, please? This morning I woke ever so early, and one bright beautiful star shone in that eastern window. I never saw it before, and I thought of the Star in the East, that guided the wise men to the place where Jesus was. Good night. Mama. Such a happy, happy day!”
“Good night, my precious little Christmas Carol — mother’s blessed Christmas child.”
