The Romance of a Christmas Card (1916), by Kate Douglas Wiggin



Christmas is the most famous holiday of the year, and the word itself evokes images of Santa Claus, reindeer, snow, Christmas trees, egg nog and more. At the same time, it represents Christianity’s most important event, the birth of the baby Jesus. Instantly, well known Christmas carols ring in your ears, pictures of the Nativity Scene become ubiquitous, or maybe you even picture nutcrackers or Scrooge and Tiny Tim. Regardless, Christmas is always the perfect time for holiday cheer, and reading classic Christmas stories. This version of Kate Douglas Wiggin’s The Romance of a Christmas Card includes a table of contents and several Christmas related pictures. “My door is on the latch tonight, The hearth fire is aglow. I seem to hear swift passing feet — The Christ Child in the snow.” Reba, the minister’s new wife, was spirited, vigorous, courageous, and clever. She was also invincibly, incurably happy — so that the minister seemed to grow younger every year. Reba doubled his joys and halved his burdens, tossing them from one of her fine shoulders to the other like feathers. She swept into the quiet village life of Beulah like a salt sea breeze. Now she has a plan — one involving a few small verses she has penned. For there are rebellious youths and some contention in the church that threatens to split it . . . Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923) was author of such popular works as “Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm” and “Penelope’s English Experiences.
