A Favorite Holiday

Hello Dear Reader,
Union Pacific Railroad brought Santa into Milford on the train each year. The day he was to arrive, the family bundled up in their warm coats and went to the railroad station. They waited at the depot watching anxiously for the big engine that carried him. It was very exciting for the young ones. When Santa Claus did arrive, he gave each child candy and nuts from his bag.

One year Grandma (Caroline) Hall told the children they could have one gift from the Sears and Roebuck catalogue for Christmas if it didn’t cost more than three dollars. They looked at the catalogue for hours trying to decide what to get. Then, on Christmas morning, the children received more than they had expected. It’s no wonder that Christmas was one of their favorite holidays.
