For Xmas Eve, a special heroine - Babushka - from the old Russian Christmas story. Babushka was too busy to heed the call to follow the new born King, the Christ child, as she had housework to do. When at last she's finished, she gathers up the toys in her cupboard (she had a baby who had died) and follows him but never quite catches up. As she goes on her way each Xmas Eve, she leaves a toy for every child on her way to find the Baby Jesus.
Merry Christmas to all our Pocketeers - both writers and readers - and best wishes for a Happy and Successful New Year 2013.
