CHRISTMAS in July
December 11, 1921. "Dear Children, Soon I'll be coming to your house with loads of toys and games and candy. Now, I'm going to watch real close to see how pretty you have made your tree or fireplace. To help you make your home cheery for Christmas, I have had these beautiful COLORTOY CANDY BAGS printed here so you can cut out, color, and make them to hang on your tree or fireplace, or fill them with candy and use them as gifts for your little friends. Its loads of fun. Yours for a Merry Christmas, SANTA CLAUS."

I really like these little gift bags and I hope you will color and put them together to hold small gifts or candy. Several of the bags could be used for Halloween or Thanksgiving too!
