Fannie Flagg Shares Her Heartwarming Redbird Christmas Story

I loved joining Mom on visits to “Miss Frances” in her beautiful old home on the river. Magnolia Springs was a true nature’s paradise, with so many varieties of birds and other wildlife. It was such fun to be there, especially around Christmastime when Miss Frances would dress up as Mrs. Claus and hand out toys and sacks of delicious homegrown pecans. Even after we moved up to Birmingham, my mother would plan a trip or two every year to see Miss Frances.
