what makes me happy !

“I cherish her gift!” Above my fireplace used to hang a framed Victorian print of a mother and daughter, placed there just before my mom passed away. When redecorating years later, I decided to hang something new. But, as I mentioned to my friend Colleen, it had to be something special. As we were flipping through a magazine, I admired a white burlap wreath. To my surprise, on Christmas Eve Colleen gave me a beautiful burlap wreath she’d handmade. I was so touched, and I knew right away that it was going to hang in the special spot above my fireplace. I smile every time I see it!

• Walt Disney’s first full-length animated film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, had its star-studded premiere in Los Angeles in 1937.

Dickens was the first famous writer to read his work aloud in public—and his first reading was this book. He also chose it as his last reading, in 1870, saying to the audience before retiring due to ill health, “ . . . I vanish now for evermore, with one heartfelt, grateful, respectful, and affectionate farewell.” • The four-hour-long film Gone With…
