Hereby presenting an excerpt from The Hollow Tree and Deep Woods Book (1900) by Albert Bigelow Paine. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by J. M. Conde.
“Well, the Hollow Tree people had never heard of Santa Claus. They knew about Christmas, of course, because everybody, even the cows and sheep, know about that; but they had never heard of Santa Claus. You see, Santa Claus only comes to Mr. Man’s house, but they didn’t know that, either, so they
thought if they just hung up their stockings he’d come there, too, and that’s what they made up their minds to do. They talked about it a great deal together, and Mr. ‘Possum looked over all his stockings to pick out the biggest one he had, and Mr. Crow he made himself a new pair on purpose.”
