Now, she uses it during the entire December. Conl]nued from page 29 ticularly good, but they're expected. These are enjoyed as stockings are examined and the gifts are opened. Young won't allow anyone to hurry. Savoring the moment is part of her plan, not ripping up paper and dashing about. Gift presenting and unwrapping can last for hours.
