The Diary in December

Wynne started keeping her diary in November. The family now prepare for Christmas at their home, Brookfield, in Dorset.

December 1st – 7th

The Bazaar, painting classes and Christmas
preparations begin. On the 7th Wynne has a scare from a runaway
horse.

December 8th – 14th

December weather. Hare coursing, mud, love
letters and horrible new hymns in church.

December 15th – 21st

A Christmas trip to Bath for present shopping
and much visiting of friends and relations.

December 22nd – 28th

Wynne has a very dull Christmas…presents
are given and received on the 24th, so the 25th seems very boring.

December 29th – 31st

New Year’s Eve is a much more rumbustious
affair – games, pranks, and the house in uproar…
