We were the first of our circle to try a spot of reproduction and our friends had been generous to the infant: some stuffed toys and a few plastic knick-knacks, as well as some very gratefully received small clothing. The toys were looted and re-purposed as tree-ornaments and I think we may have cut some other stuff out of cartridge paper. I know a red plastic key was detached from a teething ring and hung up and some unlikely creature finished up on the highest point to act the fairy. I won't belabor the point but our humble make-do Christmas had something in common with an earlier event where a manger was re-purposed as a cot.
