Make Next Christmas as
Happy as You Want It
Christmas happiness depends upon making
others happy. 1 lie happier you can make
your loved ones, the happier you will be.
Each Christmas finds us hoping that we will
be able to give more and better presents next
Christmas. But mere hoping will never do it.
The surest way to make next Christmas a
banner day is to join our Christmas Savings
Club right away. It s a systematic savings
plan that's easy to follow.
