The Star of Bethlehem has been
the subject of extensive research and
Modern astronomers have consid
ered several natural phenomenon
theories without attaching top much
weight to any such hypothesis.
Skeptics regard the whole thing as
mere invention, colored with Oriental
imagery, designed to honor Christ;
and. faith accepts the star as the
supernatural phenomenon which pro
claimed the birth of Jeeua.
The first chapter of the gospel ac
cording to St Matthew,, begins:
"The book of the generation of
Jesus Christ the son of David, the
son of Abraham ..."

Various legends claim to tell the
story of the fliut Christmas tree;
acridly, evergreen decorations were
so closely associated with pagan cele
brations that they were banned by
many ecclesiastics of the early
to literature, the fint
. tree was set up st Stras
bourg, Germany, in 1604; even then,
the cry rose agiainst heathen cus
toms and, as late as 1851, the Rev.
Henry Schwan Was severely criticised
for setting up a Christmas tree in his
church in Cleveland, Ohio.
St Francis of Assist received spec
ial permission from the pope to pre
sent s tableau of the nativity scene.
This first crib, set st Greccio, Italy,
in 122S, waa an immediate sensation;
the renaissance endowed the cribs
with ornate pageantry and, modern
ly, the crib is to southern Europe
and Catholic countries what the tree
is to America and northern lands.
Eighteenth century Italians were
fond of a fantastic decoration called
the Gappo, Pyramidical in construc

framework of lathes with transverse
shelves rising to three or four stories,

colored paper, tufts, tassels, fringes,
tiny pine cones, and little flags; a

were covered with small gifts, etc.;

sides and a large gilt cone ornament

designer probably never saw a
