Happy Holidays!
Charles Burchfield, The Star (1941-1948)



"Well its beginning to seem a little like Christmas, now. Getting ready for Christmas is more fun than the realization....Buying presents, conscientiously, is a real pleasure. Those who by something “to get it over with” don’t know the real fun of Christmas. And we all like to wonder and speculate as to what is in every mysterious package brought home—such a bustling and whispering as there is and crackling of paper—how wild we are to know!" Charles Burchfield, December 12, 1910



Happy Holidays from all of us at the Burchfield Penney!
