Words of Old at Christmastime: "A Kidnapped Santa Claus" by L. Frank Baum

Excerpt: 

"Santa Claus lives in the 
Laughing Valley, where stands 
the big rambling castle in which 
his toys are manufactured. His 
workmen, selected from the 
ryls, knooks, pixies and fairies, 
live with him, and everyone is 
as busy as can be from 
one year's end to another."

"Stay" is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary
(A.B. Alcott). Stay and visit awhile. Your comments mean a lot to me.
