THE CHRI^AS SPIRIT
By PEARL C. HILfcER.
The whole world Is » Christy tw^
And stars It* many candles be.
The spirit of Christmas should be
one of love, charity, sympathy and
hospitality.' Christmas m^ns the an
niversary of the birth of Christ, and
only the best impulses of the human
heart should characterize the season
of rejoicing and giving.
Perhaps, when we' are puazled and
worried about our Christmas ^fts, we
may not be wholly unselfish our
selves, or we may be striving to feive
to him that hath. It you are doubtful
about the appreciation your little ||ft
may receive try giving it to someOne
more needy, and the doubt will quick
ly vanish. Oftentimes the ^fts most
easily selected and bestowed express
the truest spirit of giving. Cease to
give when it becomes a task, for it Is
Not what we give, but what we share.
For the gift ^thout the giver Is bare.
Is there a Santa Claus? The Ger
man named Krist Kindlein, Christ
child, finally became corrupted into
Kriss Kringle, a being now identified
with Santa Claus. Saint Nicholas, a
S3monymous term, was a Grreek, who
died about 343 A. D. was con
sidered a patron of the children and a
good genius of the gift season. Santa
Claus means the spirit of Christmas.
The custom of hanging up stock
ings on Christmas eve originated in
England and was brought to this
country by the Pilgrim Fathers.
Decorations and music are indispen
sable for the Christmas season, and
these are within the reach of all. It
is an ancient belief that the mistletoe
contains medicinal properties, and it
was supposed to have the power to
dispel any evil spirits.
Since Christmas symbolizes the
birth of the Christ child what a griev
ous custom it is to make the contrac
tion Xmas stand for all that is so
good and beautiful. Surely we can
take time to write the word out fully
and portray a picture of beauty and
dignity In commemoration of the holi
day (holy day).
Oh, sing a carol Joyfully,
The year's great feast is keeping.
