Millie & Billie Roundbottom: The adopted twins of Fred & Anna Roundbottom.
Millie & Billie's parents had already passed away in a farming accident
when this photo was taken in 1893.
Fred & Anna, prominent residents in the community, were without children
so they were happy to accept the little ones.
They were very good parents who promoted the Santa tradition in their home.
This photo was titled " Millie & Billie waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve".

My question is this: If they are waiting for Santa, why didn't Fred & Anna
tell them that he wouldn't be coming down a chimney with a blazing fire?

Xmas Wee Willie Winkie

"Wee Willie Winkie on Xmas Eve"
oil on canvas - 6"x8"
animal art

My version of Wee Willie Winkie with his Teddy on Xmas eve.

Did you know the origin of the Wee Willie Winkie?
The explanation of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was to teach children to associate every day tasks with their own lives. Before the days of the wireless, television and the Internet great reliance was put upon the Town Crier to pass on the latest news and information. 'Wee Willie Winkie' was the children's version of the Town Crier! The author of the poem was William Miller (1810 - 1872) and the first publication date of the words to Wee Willie Winkie was in 1841.
