East Lyme, Connecticut, USA (Flanders) (Niantic)
1898 Christmas in East Lyme


News
ALL THE CHILDREN AND THEIR ELDERS CELEBRATE THE DAY.

Saturday night was a red letter time for East Lyme children and their friends. A fine Christmas tree was provided in the hall and loaded down with presents and decorations. At 5 o'clock the juveniles gathered in great force and were all supplied with as much cake and coffee, etc., as they could accommodate. After the hunger of the multitude was appeased a miscellaneous program of songs, etc., was rendered. Then that worthy old gentleman who travels under so many aliases appeared, namely Santa Claus. It is certain that the uproarious glee of the little folks on receiving their various gifts far more than repaid the kind and thoughtful ladies for their arduous labors in carrying out the affair.
