Christmas Babies,
Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada 1926

- from the Manitoba Free Press,
Monday, December 27, 1926, p. 4

Christmas Day is Observed With Traditional Feasting and Merriment in Winnipeg.

At least four Christmas babies were born in Winnipeg in 1926 –all were girls born at Grace Hospital.

First came Mr and Mrs. E. MANN of Winnipeg’s baby – born “when Christmas was but 54 minutes old”.

Later came the daughters of Mr. and Mrs. R. J. GILLESPIE of Sperling, Manitoba, and of Mr. and Mrs. A. ENGLISH and Mr. and Mrs. Hugh HUMPHREY, all of Winnipeg.

I wonder if any of these little girls were named Merry, or perhaps, Noel?
