Nyssa: Santa's Elf
"Joy is a subtle elf; I think one's happiest when he forgets himself." ~ Cyril TourneurThe Christmas picture with Santa taken in 1994 has Nyssa as Santa's Elf. She wore this outfit in the picture and it was adorable. The costume has over 40 small jingle bells on the saw-toothed hem, collar, sleeve hems, and larger bells on the hat and at the tips of the coiled toe shoes. Oh, my! This girl did jingle and jangle when she walked. Santa wanted her to accompany him to the North Pole but she had other pressing obligations.... school. Christmas morning she acted as our elf, handing out the presents. It was a wonderful joyful time that year. How nice to remember the Christmas' past as we celebrate Christmas present and build memories for Christmas' future.
