One A Day For Happiness !
'The really legitimate time for eating mince pies dates from Christmas Day to Twelfth Day. There is a legend that if you take one per day during that mystic period you will ensure 12 months’ following felicity. I hope my readers do not fail to perceive in what an easy, pleasant manner orthodoxy and a happy life may be secured.'
Preston Herald, 08 December 1883.
