THE TXDTANWrOUS STAR, SATURDAY, DECEMBER 3. 1927. LATEST SOCIAL AND PERSONAL NEWS Christmas Kindles a Light in the Eyes of All Humanity T 1 IN GIVING (ilFTS WE RECEIVE THE GREATEST GIFT OK ALL 1 SNOWED the other day, and because it was late afternoon, the mellow, yellow light streamed on Block s windows, rich with gifts. It glinted and sparkled on the great white snowflakes, and on the smiles of gift-hunters seeking the windows, as a girl a mirror. A man. ;i kindly Rtay-liaired man. seasoned hy many Christ masos, stood watching with a look of unfathomable mystery. Turning to me, he said, "Do you see it, too? That's why I like this time of year best ... It does something to people's faces . . . there isn't an ugly face here . . . they have all become suddenly lovely, haven't they'.' It's because they have forgotten about themselves, in trying to make others happy ... and in doing so, they are receiving a thousand fold, an enrichment to their souls." I looked, and saw every one hugging a gift for some one else . . . maybe that interesting package concealed a fur coat, maybe that tiny one was a Tecla pearl necklace for H-E-R, and perhaps there was a dolly or a train of cars for Toddy carried by that brisk young man and he, why, he would get more of a thrill than Toddy out of it. Who said "Christmas was just for children?" "I've always thought," my new friend went on, "it was much nicer and more thoughtful to give gifts that are Life's Little Luxuries the things people always long lor, but somehow miss buying for themselves ah ! that is the gift that brings greatest joy. Though, truth, it isn't what you give, it's the Way you give. A little gift in a great big package with a letter of love tucked in will be remembered the whole year through. Folks are just little Tads they really never grow up. We play make-believe all day, all year long. It's the way you give gifts that makes us shut our eyes and dream and find you great. People should think hard about Christmas giving; work at this thins of making people happy, and they'll find it well worth working for" . . .
