A Heath family Christmas-carol program always seems like a good idea . . .
None of the Heath children was born on Sunday, but many of them almost were, which may account for the fact that, although bright and bonny and good and gay they are not, bonny and gay they indubitably are.
They may get A2 in handwriting and D4 in word analysis; they may get “wholeheartedly enthusiastic” in sports and “constantly inattentive” in social studies, but they are the bonniest crew — not in the whole country; that’s ridiculous, I always tell people — in New England. Though, I admit it, I don’t know the rest of the country very well.
