Excerpt from “A Christmas House”
Babs pulled out a three-foot long cutout HAPPY BIRTHDAY banner.
“For the Baby Jesus!” Lizbeth exclaimed.
“No stupid, for Mother! At midnight tonight she’ll be sixty.” Babs took the banner and headed straight for the front door.
“Babs, I wouldn’t hang it out front,” Margaret warned. “I don’t think it’s something she’s looking forward to.” She looked at the bright glittery letters. It had been a family tradition for as long as she could remember. “But if you insist on hanging it,” she conceded somewhat, “put it someplace she’s not likely to see it. Like the bathroom!”
