Christmas Tree

The Gazette
December 26, 1900

On account of the death of Miss Emma Dean, the Christmas tree celebration, under the auspices of the Farmerville Sabbath schools, was postponed from Monday until Tuesday evening, at which time a large crowd assembled at the Baptist church to witness this old-time custom of gift distribution. After singing a couple appropriate songs by the choir, Eld. J. H. Hughes made a pretty talk on the subject of the Christmas tree, and then the interesting part — the distribution of presents — began. The hearts of the young were made gay and jubilant by the reception of gifts; and the older ones were made happy in seeing the children bright and joyful.
