Hereby presenting an excerpt from Yule-Tide in Many Lands (1916) by Mary P. Pringle and Clara A. Urann. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is an illustration by L. J. Bridgman.

“YULE-TIDE IN AMERICA: According to the late Lawrence Hutton, ‘Our Christmas carols appear to have come from the Holy Land itself; our Christmas trees from the East by way of Germany; our Santa Claus from Holland; our stockings hung in the chimney, from France or Belgium; and our Christmas cards and verbal Christmas greetings, our Yule-logs, our boars’ heads, our plum puddings and our mince pies from England. Our turkey is, seemingly, our only contribution.’ Let us add the squash-pie!”
