My mom (Birchie Faye Allard) received this Christmas Carol book in 1943 from her sister Harriet's sons - Douglas, David and Edwin. She was 9 years old at the time. Since I was little, my mom would place the book out on our table each Christmas. I loved the beautiful illustrations and music and would sit by the tree and sing page after page of Christmas carols. My mom has a beautiful voice and if I didn't know the tune of the song, I would ask her to sing it for me. Years later, after my own daughters were born, my mom passed down this special book to me in 1995. It's one of my most treasured possessions. Below is a picture of the inscription page with my Aunt Harriet's entry and my mom's entry. I plan one year to write my own inscription when I pass it down to one of my daughters.
