Meg

Good-hearted ‘Meg” leads her sisters in the solemn ritual of reading from Marmee’s gift book, with it’s wise teachings. “Meg at Christmas” wears a taffeta skirt in holiday plaid, topped with a velvet jacket in a shade of the green that matches the cover of her book. Her gift for Mother is a pair of gloves that prove to be a perfect fit.

Jo at Christmas

Eager “Jo” is the first to wake on Christmas morning – and the first to discover Marmee’s gift under her pillow. “Jo at Christmas” wears a festive gown of crimson taffeta, which matches the color for the books she’s received from her mother. She holds a new pair of army slippers – worn just to work out the stiffness – that are her gift to Marmee.

Beth at Christmas

Sweet “Beth” receives a dove colored book – so very suitable for the family’s little dove – but for this holiday she dresses in a deep forest green and weaves flowers into her hair. “Beth at Christmas” holds the handkerchiefs – monogrammed by hand with the word “mother” – that are her gift for her beloved Marmee.

Amy at Christmas
The holidays bring out the best in “Amy at Christmas.” The sometimes vain and selfish daughter, inspired by the generosity of her sister, rushes out to buy Marmee a fine, big bottle of cologne. “Amy” wears a lovely holiday dress of deep blue – her favorite color, and the color of the cover of her gift book from Marmee.
