Yaklma Ave, Phone 4591 "lt's not funny." "Sure it is. A big joke." They turned into the restaurant and he helped her off with 'her coat. She ea'd uncertainly, "What's a joke?" "Christmas! It's a big joke on every- c, ne. It's turned into something the Bet- ter Business Bureau thought up. Iok at the store. Jammed! J. Q. Public out spencing a lot of money he can't afford on a lot of gilts his relatives won't like. ]t's a joke!" His cynicism, jolted Jean. What's wrong with you ? You're home for Christ- lTJas." "What does that prove?" "Well.. but if you came from a big tamily..." "I do. And they all go for Christmas head over heels. Morn starts way back in November with fruit cake and spice cookies and all that" "I know. My mother..." but his sar- donic little smile stopped her. "If I could be home for Christmas," she said softly, "I wouldn't want anything else." '*Kid stuff," he told her and reached for a drum stick. The chicken was good, the French fries hot. And because they were young they put their problems aside for awhile and ate revenously. "Now Why do people always think Christmas-and-snow like ham-and-eggs?" She was appalled. She tried to tell him, to describe how bright and clean and deep a drift of snow can be. But he didn't understand. "I have some snap- shots, l'll bring them omorrow," she" promised. "You'll see." Three Days Before Christmas Jean and Ted sat in the restaurant again next night, their heads bent over the pictures. Just looking at them made Jean forlorn. "You're homesick, aren't you?" There was unexpected understanding in Ted's voice. "How come you can't get home ?." "Not enough time and not enough money." She shrugged. "When I got a chance to type my way through college I snapped it up without counting the miles. I'm the eldest and I thought I should manage for myself. I didn't know... "May I sit with you? There's no other table and..." They glanced up. "Santa Claus," Ted exclaimed. "Sure, sit down. Got to work tonight ?" The man nodded. "Us too. You'd think people could get their shopping done without the store staying open night. Christmas has been coming all year." The man shifted uncomfortably. "Guess it catches some folks short. Thanks for letting me sit here. I only get an hour and it takes awhile to climb into that outfit." "You've a hard job," said Jean. "The kids!" said Santa. "The ques- tions they ask!" Jean smiled sympathetically. "What am I gonna bring 'era? I bet I've promised a couple thousand trains and twice that many dolls." "That's what makes Christmas a big success," said Ted, "for the merchants as well as the kids." "These modern youngsters," said San- ta, "they're getting particular. My little girl now, she wants a special kind of doll, one of those story-book dolls." I-Is sighed. "very day I get through an- swering questions here and I go home and she wants to know if she's going to get a story-book doll." "As if she weren't," scoffed Ted. 'ff dunno. They're sort of expensive. ! got a little doll at the dime store and my wife made a lot of clothes for it, but it won't be the same to Marie. Its eyes don't open and close." His thin face reddened. "That's funny, isn't it? Santa Claus not being able to give his own children what they want for Christmas!" Jean was afraid Ted would say, "Sure, it's a Joke!" but ae didn't. "My wife's been sick. We've had a lot of bills." The man wasn't explaining. He was simply too tired to keep his troubles to himself. "I couldn't get any- one to care for her. Not with three kids. I had to take a. month'm'leave from worh" "Is she better now?," Jean asked gently. "Getting better. The high school girl next door is on vacation and she helps while I'm working. By the first of the year l'll be back at my regular job. The thing about Marie and this doll," he went on, and is voice was troubled, "the Sis- ter that teaches first grade said the kids could get anything they wanted if they prayed hard enough. Marie prays every night for a story-book doll." "As if Christmas weren't trouble enough without THAT!" Ted was bitter. "I told Marie to ask Sister Agatha how come the Baby Jesus was giving presents when it was HIS birthday. She said be- cause He was God and knew that was the best way to celebrate. Must be one oi those young sisters with stars in her eyes." "Sister AGATHA ?" Ted's face had an odd, remembering look. "She's not so young." Abruptly he got up and reached for Jean's coat.
