It's the second day of Christmas 2018, which is sometimes called Boxing Day, and honor of this occasion since I can't give you two turtle doves (in keeping in line with a song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas"), I'm "giving" you a mini essay (posted above) by E.B. White, which was published on this day of December 26th in 1936.
And, dear reader, if you can't give your true love two turtle doves on this second day of Christmas, consider giving them something from my collections on Fine Art America. Here are the links:
