A CHRISTMAS TREE - CHARLES DICKENS
A CHRISTMAS TREE WHEN I WAS A CHILD

the earth-I look into my youngest Christmas recollections!
All toys at first, I find. Up yonder, among the green holly and red berries, is the tumbler, with his hands in his pockets, who wouldn't lie down, but, whenever he was put upon the floor, persisted in rolling his fat body about, until he rolled himself still, and brought those lobster eyes of his to bear upon me-when I affected to laugh very much, but in my heart of hearts was extremely doubtful of him. Close beside him is that snuffbox out of which there sprang a counselor in a black gown, with a red cloth mouth, wide open, who was not to be endured on any terms, but could not be put away either! for he used suddenly, in a highly magnified state, to fly out of mammoth snuffboxes in dreams, when least expected. Nor is the frog with cobbler's wax on his tail far off; for there was no knowing where he wouldn't jump; and when he flew over the candle and came upon one's hand with that spotted back-red on a green groundhe was horrible. The cardboard lady in a blue silk skirt who was stood up against the candlestick to dance, and whom I see on the same branch, was milder and was beautiful; but I can't say as much for the larger cardboard man who used to be hung against the wall and pulled by a string; there was a sinister expression in that nose of his; and when he got his legs round his neck (which he very often did), he was ghastly, and not a creature to be alone with.
I never wondered what the dear old donkey with the panniers-there he is!-was made of, then! His hide was real to the touch, I recollect. And the great black horse with the round red spots all over him-the horse that I could so even get upon-I never wondered what had brought him to that strange condition, or thought that such a horse was not commonly seen at Newmarket. The four horses of no color, next to him, that went in the wagon of cheeses, and
