This was on my wish list for Christmas when I was at St Edith's , so disappointed that I never got it comment by Linda.

St Edith's at Christmas 1953




  1. Our Christmas's were amazing at St.Edith's, I always felt Christmas was very the same once I left. Over the years I have tried to model my Christmas's on those we had at St Edith's.

    My main memory is that huge tree in the entrance where we all congregated on Epiphany waiting patiently for our name to be called out to receive our gift. I always have the tallest tree I can get but would never have a ceiling high enough to have one like St.Edith's, looking back it seemed like the one in Trafalgar Square!

  2. "meant to say that Christmas was never the same"
