Note: Christmas, celebrated with fruit and toys, was Jones favorite season when she was a child. Preparations went on for three weeks. The family made their own decorations and presents, and gave the house a thorough cleaning. Making decorative home-made pillow shams was a seasonal custom that Jones remembers fondly.
