2 Christmas Days in U.S. Says Aussie War Bride

Duluth, Minn. (U.P.) - For some 75 war brides in the Duluth Superior area, America has 2 Christmas days, Mrs. Robert Stewart, former Sydney, Australia girl, had decided Friday.

The Superior, Wis. housewife said Thanksgiving "is just like another Christmas" as she enjoyed her first American family Thanksgiving reunion with turkey and trimmings Thursday.

The blond girl from "down under," who is chairman of the "Rainbow club" of 50 war brides from 16 nations, said she had been in America only 6 months, and found her first sight of snow "thrilling."
