"Suited to a T — A Christmas Story for the Little Ones at Home"

Want a nice little pre-Christmas treat? I found "Suited to a T — A Christmas Story for the Little Ones at Home" on the Library of Congress website, and it's a darling tale in which tea features quite prominently.

In this scene, we're told that "Dear grandmamma" was a woman who "often sipped her tea and smiled when listening to the happy child."

And I won't spoil the story by telling you what "Dear grandmamma" got from Santa Claus, but since this booklet was published by the Great Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company, I'll bet you can guess! Click here if you'd like to read this tale for yourself.


  1. I love it! I went to the link and read the whole thing - so sweet and quaint - and what a lovely gift that Grandmama got from Santa!

  2. Thank you for sharing the link; cute story and graphics!

  3. I wish they would reprint that. It's adorable!

  4. What a darling story! Made even more precious when I realized that The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company was otherwise known as A&P, which was my grandfather's favorite grocery store. After he retired, he took over the kitchen and shopping duties. I loved going to the A&P with him. Sweet memories! :)


Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment! It makes my day to hear from readers!
