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

such a tea-drinking as I have had through the means of yonder little set of blue crockery, which really would hold liquid, and which made tea nectar? And if I did once shriek out, as a poisoned child, and strike the fashionable company with consternation, by reason of having drunk a little teaspoon, inadvertently dissolved in too hot tea, I was never the worse for it!
Upon the next branches of the tree, lower down, hard by the green roller and miniature gardening-tools, how thick the books begin to hang. Thin books, in themselves, at first, but many of them, and with deliciously smooth covers of bright red or green. What fat black letters to begin with! "A was an archer and shot at a frog." Of course he was. He was an apple pie also, and there he is! He was a good many things in his time, was A, and so were most of his friends, except X, who had so little versatility that I never knew him to get beyond Xerxes or Xantippelike Y, who was always confined to a yacht or a yew tree; and Z condemned forever to be a zebra or a zany. But now the very tree itself changes, and becomes a bean-stalkthe marvelous bean-stalk up which Jack climbed to the Giant's house! And now those dreadfully interesting, double-headed giants, with their clubs over their shoulders, begin to stride along the boughs in a perfect throng, drag ging knights and ladies home for dinner by the hair of their heads. And Jack-how noble, with his sword of sharpness, and his shoes of swiftness!
Good for Christmas-time is the ruddy color of the cloak in which-the tree making a forest of itself for her to trip through, with her basket-Little Red Riding-Hood comes to me one Christmas Eve to give me information of the cruelty and treachery of that dissembling wolf who ate her grandmother, without making any impression on his appetite,
