Ancestors' Advent Calendar: Dec 1st: Decorate Your Christmas Staircase With Evergreens!

There is an air of welcome to a Christmas guest when he steps into a hall and mounts a staircase greeted by graceful festoons reaching from one corner of a cornice to another, ' Supplement to the Sheffield and Rotherham Independent, Saturday December 24th, 1881.
