IColottful flower borders, edging piants along walks and drives, well selected .foundation plants, and trees for shade, color and framitiig your home all add up to enjoyment and pleasure for you and everyone in your community. North Carolina is one of the most garden-minded stales in the nation. With more individual en- thliisdasm and responsibility, it could also be the most beautiful. Improving the environment is the favorite conversation piece in these days of haste and waste. Improvement will only come when eeich citizen assumes his or .her proper place in the ever changing scheme of things. .Plant the flowers, shrubs, trees, fruits and vegetables that you like best suited to your locality. Taking pride In whatever you do will be e rewarding experience and a fine conrtlbution to com munity spirit and beauty. You may be surprised to learn that the avocation or hobby of gardening amounts to a whop ping 4 billion dollars annually in the United States. I think the reason for this stems from the fact tita-t it is something in which th^ entire family can participate. Aside from the family groups, we have the specialists who can create many art forms with liv ing plants. Religious Cards Take The Lead In Popularity “Sorry, we don’t have any more Christmas cards, only some religious ones.” These words, supposedly spok en by a saleswoman to a lasi- mlnute shopper for greeting card.*, a good many years ago, wouldn’t he meaningful now. During recent Yule seasons, greetin;gs with a religious mes sage have led the way in popu larity. The wryly-h'umorous idea that anyone looking for cards wants some that show only the odnvlvial side of Christmas was never very funny, and now it def initely isn’t true. Early cards pictured dancing and skaters, holly and mistletoe, robins and other birds, beautiful women and charming children and flowers by the score. Such themes still appear, but they take second place to relig ious messages—especially, “Peace on earth, good will toward men.” Manger Scene i Awe-Inspiring j Creche, ChristmEis crib, man ger scene, crib of Bethany, prae- I sepe in many oountrles, the rep- ! resenlat’on of t h e Nativity , thro'Hzb figures from miniature ; to lifesize goes by many names. Under any name the re-crea tion of the manger springs from one guiding, and abiding, pur- . piise—'bringing people closer to Christmas. The highest wonder of the Christmas story is its sheer simplicity and reality. I A Child, the Son of God, born in a manner on a starry, silent night is a concept al] can com- 1 prebend because of its closeness I to human experience. Anyone who watches a child before a manger scene this Christmas will readily see, in the child’s awe and enthusiasm, tliat re-creeting llie Miracle of Christ’s birth is an exalting experience. BEGINS IN ITALY Christmas belongs to the peo ple. So thought St. Francis of Assisi. .His way of helping his Italian parishioners grow closer t o Christma swas to create the very , first praesepe, or Chrisimas crib. I His carol, • The Song of the .Creatures," made the Nativity still moi'c real to them since it told of the lowly animals which were pari of their lives and live lihood. , All this happened early in the 13th century. From that ti.-ne, the ! idea of tiie creche of crib has 'spread to virtually every coun- ; try on the globe. I 'foday, especially in Latin . America and Europe, the man ger scene sets the theme for a etan srdlums cmfwyp slirdl ww , holy and happy .Shristmastide. I TOLD IN RHYME : The story of the Nativity and its meaning for m'ankind is a rav- ored poetic theme, as is the holi-, i day cheer of hearth and home. 1 I 'Poets as diverse as William ' Shakespeare, Samuel Taylor Col- jeridge, John Grcenleaf Whittier j and T. S. Elliott have made their 'contributions. I .N"meroii.s i-arnis firsl were' poem—witness Wadsworth I»ng- I fellow’s “I Heard the Bells on ' Christmas day.” j “I heard the bells on 1 Christmas Day I Their old, familiar carols play. And wild and sweet the wa;ds repeat, 'God is not dead, nor doth He sleep'." Probably the oveiwhelming winner, among widely - known secular Christmas prems is Cle ment Clark Moore's "A Visit From St. Nicholas.” The poem, written for Ins own lildren in 1S22. is popularly How To Keep Yule Plants Yes, tliose cherislied holiday plants can keep on growing into next year. tias like plenty of water and worth 70 to HO degrees.
