It was a foolish precipitation last Christmas, but the evil of a few days may be blotted out in part. Varnish and gilding hide many stains.
I haven't really looked at that carefully before, but the event around last Christmas that she's most likely to regard as precipitate is Edmund's ordination. Do you others also read it that way? That ordination is no longer just a sort of under-performance, but a reason to be positively ashamed -- an evil and a stain to be varnished and gilded over? If so, she's reached a new level of brattiness... or indecorum, if that's even a word.
