December 18, 1944

We spent a quiet night and all slept well. This morning we did not hear or see any planes, but in the afternoon 14 planes flew overhead. We always seek shelter as we never know whether they will bomb or not.

The USAFFE has been quiet for a few days, but just a short while ago we heard shooting in the direction of the Jaro bridge. The children are all looking forward to Christmas and are excitedly making ornaments for the tree. Roland says that he knows that Santa Claus cannot come for there is too much fighting.
