Frankfurt, Germany, Dec. 11, 1949: Charles, 3, (left) seems a little less happy to see Santa than his 8-month old sister Elizabeth. The children of Sfc. and Mrs. Thomas Garefino, 24th Base Post Office did not want to entrust their Christmas wishes to the post office and came to whisper them into Saint Nick’s ear themselves.
