The Christmas Story On Judea’s rocky hilliide Lay the shepherds with their slieep. When an overwhelming radiance Roused them from their peaceful sleep. And an angel stood before them Saying, "Fear not. To you I bring News that in a stable yonder Lies the Messiah-the promised King.” “Christ is born! To God give glory!” From above cam? the refrain. “Christ is born. Re;oice, ye mortals! Peace has come on earth to reign! In the sky a star was gleaming Cam» three Wise Men from afar. To the crude and lowry manger. Guided bv tlie wondrous star. —Sfdected' A Universal Celebration We are about to approach that holiday that is vmiversally celebrated throughout the world. No other fest ival brings so much happiness and is so widely observed as Christmas, for it commemorates the birth of Christ. Its inspiring message is “Glory to God m the highest and on earth peace, good will toward men”. Many riches are stored up in Christ mas — wonder and joy, high hopes and great expections. It is at this time wr recall sights and sounds, feasting and frolic, and the goodness of be ing together. Ever since the song of of the angels came to the ears of msn over the air in Betheleheni, peo ple have honored in carols the lowly birth of Christ. Many of the customs and traditions associated with Christmas are older than this great time, especially the idea of giving gifts. As we go into our various homes to observe the glorious time let us not forget those about us that are less fortunate than we are. Let us all endeavor to make someone liappy by sharing what we have. Everyone loves to hear the story of the birth of Christ and repeat the angelic chorus “Peace on earth, good will toward men”. —Queen E.
