Sunday, September 15, 1912
It is Sunday once again, which means it is time to read Every Woman’s Encyclopaedia. The next article is on how one may construct shades for electric lights and candles. I must confess that I have no interest in this topic, and so I merely paged through it until arriving at the next one, which is about ideas for children’s fancy dress parties. I rather like the idea of dressing up as a Pantomime Fairy. I will show this to Mother, and maybe she can help me construct it in time for Hallowe’en. Curiously, the article makes no mention of that holiday; evidently in Britain, children instead dress up for Christmas.
