75 Years Ago Today - Eileen's Diary - Dec 25, 1938 (Christmas Day)

75 Years Ago Today
Eileen's Diary
Dec 25, 1938
(Christmas 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 Sunday, Dec 25:

Up late. Did chores, took baths. Folks here at 8:00 on the way to Leo's. Up to Smith's to turkey dinner. Had all the pictures taken. Pop gave me a keen end table, and individual ash tray & scarf. Pete got a saw & hammer from Merle. Home at 4:30. Did the chores, went in to the show. "You Can't Take It With You." Good. Up home tending to furnace. Home to bed.

My comments: Nice practical gifts. I like that!

Here is the one "Picture" I have that was taken that day!

Families are Forever!  ;-)
