From January until spring was fouf or five months, the weeks Until ummef vacation were an age, and'the days until my birthday took an lernity. Then, after eons it was Christmas! Nowadays, we have one Christmas right after the other. I no s6oner get the tree taken down and he Christmas mail answered when,! turn around and the holiday is Imost here again, I'll never be ready-for it, I think each year, but mir- cutously when December 25 rolls around Christmas is here ! And Christmas is for everyone — the young and the old, the rich and the poor, the ad and the joyful, . * * * CHRISTMAS IS FOR CHILDREN. All things are possible to the ery young, and if they are a'.little?-long on the "gimmee" aspect of Christmas, it is the adult's own.fault. We are the ones who tell them lat Santa can coyer the whole earth in one night with gifts for' all lildren who have been godd. But children love the story of the Babe Jin he manger and they can'well understand why the wise men came to tore Him, for doesn't everyone love tiny babies? The shadow of the ross does not enter into Christmas for children for .when you are very oung, sin is'a matter of touching something when Mamma says, "No" and sorrow is what you feel momentarily when you break a favorite toy. A sense of wonder is an essential element in enjoying Christmas, and children have an abundance of it. * . *..; . CHRISTMAS IS ?OR THE VEjiiy OLD. Then Christmas is full of memories. There are remembrances Of the time when someone had to stand guard lest the lig nted candles set fire to the tree, through the first strings of lights that wa-ked on series', up to the present day with the" long-glow, neon, bubble- lights, Thera are the lean years and the" fit Ones, the years when Christmas Was celebrated with ones Own small children, then the grand-nildren, ahoY'.Aow the grest-grandchildren. But always4here is the essential Christmas message—the tidings of great joy. CHRISTMAS IS FOR TEACHERS. For weeks in advance of the big day teachers are busy sup< rvising decorations for the school robfh, thinking up easily-made, and w) at they hope will be useful, lifts for the pupils to give to Mom and Dad. T iachers rriake pop-corn balls for the, Christmas party, cookies for the mi -chers" teaaind direct programs. It's a rare teacher who isn't involved :n a progrialn at Christmas. The Wi&srieri have a tendency to giggle during rehearsal,; the soloists invariably come :dowri with tonsilitis or the me'asrts just before the performance and the Ahgels sometimes get into fights mth the shepherds, but somehow the program always turns out to be a huge success. • ..... , ' - * * -.•- ' * . • .-'•'.-, " .-- . • CHRISTMAS IS FOR GROUCHES. Its the one time during the year when; even"< the most crusy can mellow without spoiling their reputations. If; you are going to be perfectly logical, Christmas is filled-with lots Of humbug, frou-frou and commercialism, but there is something about the day that maki J families forget feuds, neighbors forget old grudges^- and professional Scrooges hurry out to buy dolls and toys and give them anonymously for Christmas presents. ...:. * «; * /•••::.-•..'• •••-. ... CHRISTMAS IS FOR POSTMAN.- To them, it miist seem that everybody in the world has a package for Aunt Annie, mailed at the last minute, plus 35 Christmas cards all with postage due. Ever since: the, post office department was established, postmasters have been warning about the last of November, to be sure to mail early for Christmas. But there never has been, nor will be, a tim6 when people do" it. The mail sacks grow heavy, and the bunions get sores and for the postmen part of the joy of Christmas morning is that the rush is over. • * * » . • , CHRISTMAS IS FOR FATHERS/At the first Christmas, a father— a'step-father if you must be technical—was given a precious trilst. He had a sweet young wife and a very special baby on the way and he had no place to shelter them from the cold.' His faith and loving care played a big part in bringing Christmas to .U9. Nowadays, fathers are still play- JS8-. a ^.5??*-to-Christmas. They ha%2 to pay their taxes, even aa,the, • the Holy; Family'did, and a place for their loved ones to"livef food for their hunger, and gadgets and baubles for their delight is a father's first aim. The socks, ties and shirts, probably paid for out of his own money, are but a minute reflection of the joy Fathers get out of Christmas. " . * * « CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE SAD and the bereaved. The onetime occupied chair at Christmas dinner is most poignant the first year it is vacant, but if it weren't for the assurance that Christmas brings, death would ba desolate and there would be no hope for any of us. * * , •* / CHRISTMAS IS FOR THE CHEERFUL. If you get a kick out of Mother Nature's shenanigans all year long, the sight of a fresh snowfall or a pink sunset in December will give you a special life because it is Christmas. The jokes seem funnier, the tinsel more silvery,, the fruitcake nuttier, the greetings warmer, wives more beautiful and husband's foibles more endearing at Christmas, * * * CHRISTMAS IS FOR MOTHERS. Sometimes it seems-that all Moms are good for around Christmas is to be dispatchers to the various holiday) activities, to cook huge mountains of goodies, to write the whole year's letters along with the Christmas cards, to iron choir robes, choose and decorate the tree, select the gifts, and to somehow turn up glamorously groomed at Christmas parties. * * . * BUT CHRISTMAS IS FOR MOTHERS in a very special way. When God choose to come to earth as a child, He picked a simple maid to bear His gift, and for all time motherhood was glorified, Mary bore her Babe, the same way women have been doing since the beginning of time. After it was over with, she knew the joy of holding her firstborn in her arms, just as we do today. And as Scripture tells us she "pondered all these things in her heart". * * * CHRISTMAS IS FOR CHILDREN, BUT IT IS children of every age. If someone says they just don't seem to get the joy out of Christmas that they used to, it is because they have lost some of their child-like wonder. Or perhaps they have prepared their Christmas gifts so far in advance of the day, that when Christmas really comes, all they have left to do is to receive. And it could be that they are thinking more about how Christmas should be for them than they are of how happy they can make Christmas for others. The remedy for this situation, it seems to me is to go out and search for Christmas. It can be found waiting at our doorsteps. * * * ' THIS WEEK'S RECIPE IS ONE that has been repeated many times.
