Radiant as the Season: Yule Nuptials There are all kinds of parties at Christmas, but one that's becoming increasingly popular is the wedding party. According to professional ob servers, there's a lot of extra fun at Christmas weddings, perhaps because the spirit of the holiday adds that much more gaiety to an always happy event. Whatever the reason, a Christmas wedding can combine the best of both occasions. Here are some tips offered by Milton R. Field, president of Honey's International, Ltd., bridal salons franchisor: For instance, the bride can select Christmas colors for her bridesmaids' gowns—bright colors are not only proper for the bridal party but downright fashionable, and red or green velvet would make a seasonal splash. As for the bride's gifts to her bridesmaids, she might want to get away from traditional wrapping paper and present each gift in a gay Christmas stocking. If she does prefer paper, it might be themed in color and design to Christmas rather than to bride and groom. A few holiday touches can add color to the reception, too, the expert says. Boughs of holly and evergreens can be used as centerpieces, with bits of mistletoe placed strategically around the room. After all, since everybody kisses at weddings, it may as well be part of the schedule! Beverage offerings can include Christmas drinks such as eggnog or a wassail punch, as well as the traditional champagne and other beverages. And wedding guests will enjoy dancing to Christmas tunes, too.

McDaniel (AP Science Writer) CHICAGO (AP) — Sniffles and sneezes may be lurking among the pretty packages and tinsel of Christmas trees, a medical professor says. Every year at Christmas time patients seek relief from allergic reactions to the trees, Dr. Roy Patterson, a professor of medicine at Northwestern University said in an interview. Dr. Patterson, who specialties in treating allergies, said no statistical study has been done but that he sees two or three such patients a year and that other allergists report seeing*the same number. Most commonly, he said, these patients suffer from other allergies as well, but he said it is possible that persons who have no other allergies may be affected and do not seek medical help. The allergy is transitory, he said, and disappears after the Christmas tree is tossed out. The source of the allergic reaction for most patients, the allergist said, is the molds which grow on trees, though some persons may be allergic to substances in the tree itself. There is no particular type of Christmas tree which bears the unwanted gifts more than others, Dr. Patterson said. He points out that Christmas trees are cut in October and November and the molds grow while the trees lie in damp bundles. These molds also grow naturally on trees before they are cut, he said. The allergic reaction brings on sniffles and sneezes and itchy eyes, and persons who are subject to asthma have attacks, Dr. Patterson said. Washing the Christmas tree before bringing it in the house to decorate wUl help eliminate the problem, he said. He also suggested that an awareness of the possibility will help afflicted persons to take the necessary steps to eliminate the problem. For persons having severe allergic reactions to Christmas trees, Dr. Patterson suggests artificial trees.
