But it never give me the all-overs like it does now, some way. Guess I'll gether up a' armful o' wood, an' try to act unconcerned an' laws-a-mercy me! Ef to-day ain't been Christmas! My! my! my! An' it come an' gone befo' I remembered! I'll haf to lay this wood down ag'in an' think. I've had many a welcome Christmas gif' in my life, but the idee o' the good Lord a-timin' this like that!
