Merry Christmas!

With all the last minute holiday activity, I missed yesterday's post, but for today, from all of us at the SSS, a very Merry Christmas!  The child above sleeps basking in the glow of a Christmas tree in 1940 (from the Library of Congress).  Posts will be somewhat intermittent for the next week or so, but be sure to catch part 2 of the Swing Shift Shuffle Christmas and New Year's Special.
