12/28/14 - NNHS Newsletter - Parade of the Wooden Soldiers

All furnish'd, all in arms;
All plumed like estridges that with the wind
Baited like eagles having lately bathed;
Glittering in golden coats, like images;
As full of spirit as the month of May,
And gorgeous as the sun at midsummer;
Wanton as youthful goats, wild as young bulls.

- William Shakespeare, Henry IV, Part 1 (4.1.101-7)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates, 

   This holiday song always takes me back to my early childhood.

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parade_of_the_Wooden_Soldiers:

Parade of the Wooden Soldiers is a 1933 Fleischer Studios animated short film starring Betty Boop. It is now public domain.

The instrumental title theme (also known as "Parade of the Tin Soldiers") was composed by Leon Jessel, and is popular as Christmas music.

Synopsis

A large factory complex struggles to produce a single package, which is rushed to a toy store. The box opens, and out steps a Betty Boop doll. The other toys come to life, parade around to the music of Parade of the Wooden Soldiers and crown her their queen. But a large stuffed toy of King Kong begins breaking things up. Eventually, the big ape is defeated, and the (somewhat damaged) toys resume their parade.

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 12/27/14 - "Gold Wrapping Paper":

Gold Wrapping Paper

I received this from a friend who had a choice to make. It said that I had a choice to make too.

I've chosen. Now it's your turn to choose.

The story goes that some time ago a mother punished her five year old daughter for wasting a roll of expensive gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and she became even more upset when the child used the gold paper to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree.

Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift box to her mother the next morning and then said, 'This is for you, Momma.'

The mother was embarrassed by her earlier over reaction, but her anger flared again when she opened the box and found it was empty. She spoke to her daughter in a harsh manner.

'Don't you know, young lady, when you give someone a present there's supposed to be something inside the package?'

She had tears in her eyes and said, 'Oh, Momma, it's not empty! I blew kisses into it until it was full.'

The mother was crushed. She fell on her knees and put her arms around her little girl, and she begged her forgiveness for her thoughtless anger.

An accident took the life of the child only a short time later, and it is told that the mother kept that gold box by her bed for all the years of her life.

Whenever she was discouraged or faced difficult problems she would open the box and take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

In a very real sense, each of us, as human beings, have been given a Gold box filled with unconditional love and kisses from our children, family and friends... There is no more
precious possession anyone could hold.


If you receive this more than once in return just know that your friends have also thought of you.

     Thank you, Dearest Judy!

 Parade of the Wooden Soldiers

Written by Leon Jessel (22 Jan 1871 04 Jan 1942), 1933

The toy shop door is locked up tight
And ev'rything is quiet for the night.
When suddenly the clock strikes twelve
The fun's begun.

The dolls are in their best array,
There's going to be a wonderful parade.
" Hark to the drum, oh, here they come,"
Cries ev'ryone.

Hear them all cheering
Now they are nearing
There's the captain stiff as starch

Bayonets flashing
Music is crashing
As the wooden soldiers march

Sabers a-clinking
Soldiers a-winking
At each pretty little maid

Here they come!
Here they come!
Here they come!
Here they come!
Wooden soldiers on parade.
