When Mary Ann Clare of Kingstown, County Dublin, stole away to elope with the Englishman, she carried her shoes in one hand, her best ostrich feather hat in the other, and in her heart glowing memories of the traditional holly-covered "Fairy Rings" the Clares set up every year to the glory of Christmas and the family circle. The story shows how this tradition is carried on throughout the lives of Mary Ann's daughters and grand-daughters, and how, during the two world wars up to the present time, the Christmas Ring came to have importance for them all as a happy symbol of family unity and security.
