Title

Kenneth's Family Was of a Puritan Background

Description

Kenneth's father was of puritan congregational background. He rarely gave presents to his children, not even at Christmas (which he did not believe in). Kenneth tells about his shock when, following his marriage he discovered that his wife's childhood experience was quite the opposite: many celebrations and presents.
