jane austen illustrationPlain Jane: “I sincerely hope your Christmas in Hertfordshire may abound in the gaieties which that season generally brings, and that your beaux will be so numerous as to prevent your feeling the loss of the three of whom we shall deprive you.”

-Jane Austen in Pride and Prejudice 

Merry Christmas Eve! I shall join Jane in wishing that your Christmas “may abound in the gaieties which that season generally brings.” As far as numerous beauxs, I guess I’ll leave that up to personal preference.
