75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 24, 1938 (Christmas Eve Day)



75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 24, 1938
(Christmas Eve Day)

This entry is a post on this blog from the diary of nineteen year old Eileen KINNICK, 75 Years Ago this date.

From March 1 thru April 29, I posted every day, to cover the marriage and the early married life of Pete and Eileen (Kinnick) Smith, but decided to 'take a breather.'  Resumed with Dec 1, 1938...


Here is the daily entry for Saturday, Dec 24:

Up late. Chored most of the morning. In to town after dinner. Betty's locket came. Up home a minute. Home & chores. Up to LVene & Verle's. Over to Star church to program. Down home to see the new lights. Home late.

My comments: Well, here is the Star (Methodist) Church, to the corner west of Smith's homeplace and one mile north, on the NW corner of the intersection. Pop and his kids had been members for years. Fairly active involvement over the years. My Mom just beginning to get into that activity.
