As I have noted earlier, Mama and Auntie Rose were extremely enthusiastic about decorating our house for the Christmas holidays. There was one room that was absolutely off limits to them both, however, and that was Papa's study.
Although he professed great admiration for their elaborate accomplishments - annually declaring stoutly that this particular year was the most wondrous display ever - Papa refused to have 'his' room adorned with ribbons, garland, lights and floral extravaganzas. The most he would allow was a small, unobtrusive vase with a few fresh flowers to be placed on his desk, which task Mama fulfilled with admirable restraint. ~ from the diary of Ellen Fall (1889-1965)
