Christmas Day: first peacetime Xmas for 6 years

25 Tues. Christmas Day. Rather cold, clear but showers. Dad, Alb, Lily & Anthony came to dinner and stayed the night. The dinner was a great success, roast pork and onion sauce and three vegetables. The Christmas pudding was excellent; mince pie and custard. The cake was also very good considering the difficulty of getting ingredients. Anthony brought a lot of his presents but he could not bring his tricycle which is a real one this time. Dorothy Smith came with Jeanette and baby Margaret. The first peacetime Christmas for 6 years and my feeling was one of thankfulness.
