SANTA CLAUS CAME ON THE 9TH OF DECEMBER AND BROUGHT GIFTS
TO THE CHILDREN. CHRISTMAS WAS STRICTLY A RELIGIOUS
AFFAIR. THE PEOPLE HAD NO CHRISTMAS TREES IN THEIR HOMES
ONLY IN THE CHURCH. THE NEIGHBORS WOULD GET TOGETHER
AND BAKE PANCAKES. AND THERE WAS ALWAYS GIN INVOLVED;
THAT'S THE NATIONAL DRINK.

Submitter comment:

MR. VALKEN WASN'T SURE ABOUT THE DATE OF SANTA CLAUS
COMING, BUT THOUGHT THAT THE 9TH OF DECEMBER WAS CLOSE.
HE COULD BE REFERRING TO ST. NICHOLAS DAY THE 6TH.
