A Victorian Christmas Advent Calendar: 4th December


“The children had been up early in the morning, and beginning to roll a snowball about they very soon saw that at every roll they gave it got bigger and bigger, and at last got so big just by the cottage door that they couldn’t move it, and then it stood right in the way, so that they couldn’t get in and their mother couldn’t get out.”
From ‘Snowball’ by Edric Vredenburg, illustrated by Lizzie Mack, in ‘The Daisy Chain Library’ (classmark 1891.6.246-251)
