Upset with the news Mama and Papa told them one evening at supper, Jenny and Stella Rose couldn't believe they weren't going to have a Christmas this year. The year 1935, the great depression gripped Chicago and the entire nation. Many families were having a difficult time making ends meet. Christmas was easily an expense they could ignore. Or could they?
Together somehow Jenny and Stella Rose maintained a happy outlook. In spite of the dire circumstances, they were able to keep the spirit of Christmas and Santa Claus alive in their hearts and mind. They happily took part in all the happy festivities that were happening around them during this Happy Holiday Season. Jenny and Stella Rose participated in all the activities at school, at church, with neighbors and friends, never losing their anticipation of Christmas.
In spite of Mama and Papa's news, will Jenny and Stella Rose, celebrate a Christmas after all?
