A time for gay decorations; for Ivy, mistletoe, candies, flowers, simulated snow, lights both dim and bright. A time for presents, pretties, games and goddies. A time when Salvation Army people ring bells and humbly appeal for gifts to help the needy. A time for giving gifts. A time when not only neighborhood merchants, but whole communities engage In competetive maneuvers to clang cash registers. A time for parties. A time to celebrate with a Christmas drink. A time for family reunion. A time for cheerful faces and kind hearts. A time for antagonistic and moods to mellow. A time to gladden the eyes and hearts, especially children's. Depending on one's view, these are only a few of the pleasantries OR unpleasantries of Christmas. Many others could be mentioned. With it all, let us be thankful there are many people who celebrate Christmas . for what It is. Let us be thankful they celebrate the Silent Night reverently. Let us be thankful the crystal Star of Bethlehem speaks to us as it still glows in the sky; as It still outshines the romance of the moon and a host of other silent stars. Above all, let us be thankful we have the choice and the privileged right to join with those who are thankful. MRS.
