" In the evening the star lights Up and soft lights glow inside; the yuletide church. A-spotlight Illuminates the scene as choirs from churches in the Northeast Texas city take turns in holding outdoor Christmas carol program?. Although the religious significance of Christmas has long been emphasized in church and musical celebrations, the church nestled in the center of a park surrounded on four sides by .busy stores and shops is one of the biggest public efforts this year to emphasize the religious side of tha holiday. Temple and Victoria also stress the religious theme. Floats .in their pre-Chrisfmas parades "depicted scenes from the story of the birth of Jesus. Churches sponsored Christmas card floats, many with a religious theme, in the parade at Kilgore. The small communities of Barry and Emhouse near Corsicana, each with a population of about 200, joined together for the third year to sponsor a Christmas nativity pageant. Although the religious theme is receiving new emphasis, the varicolored lights, street decorations, big community Christmas tro« and the arrival of Santa Claus for a preholiday visit are as much a part of the Texas Christmas season as ever. At Kilgore 10-foot high stars in different colors beam from the: tops of 40 derricks. Fourteen of those derricks also are dressed^ from top to bottom with strings !| of colored lights. The wordSif » ( "Merry Xmas" and "Happy New! IJlYear" glow in red and green overf Bj downtown Kilgore. gj A 76-foot Engleman spruce cut \ g from the San Isabel National For- i *' est in Colorado towers above Burk Burnett Park in downtown Fort Worth. At night it is aglow with 40,000 lights. Colored lights outline 21 major business buildings. - ' In Texas City 1,000 red arid blue (lights twinkle from a 70-foot high 3 j Christmas tree on the top of a j which is a star four feet high. Si But close to the pincy woods of giEast Texas, Sulphur Springs 81 erected a simulated Christmas tree of "strings of tinsel and aluminum foil topped by a large stqr. A spotlight plays on (he tree at night. One of the oldest trees in Texas to be decorated for the Christmas season is a 150-year-old salt cedar on the lawn of the Brazos County courthouse In Bryan. The tree was transplanted 90 years ago from old Boonville when the county seat was moved to Bryan. Many individuals and compa- .nies have erected elaborate Christmas displays. One of the most spectacular is that of Mrs. Lee T. Burns, widow man. They began their display many years ago as a single tree decked with oranges. The display now has 15 exhibits, many of them mechanical. They include Santa and J his sleigh with eight tiny reindeer; a clown blowing bubbles from nis mouth; an elephant boundng a ball on his trunk; St Nicholas in his rocking chair and his feet in a tub of water, and a giant snowman who bows and tips his hat to sightseers. Bus drivers entering Beaumont slow down so their passengers can admire the fairy land of color made by the Christmas lights at the Sun Oil geophysical building at suburban Amelia. In the country from San Antonio to the Rio Grande Latin American families add their own customs to the Christmas observance. families are cooking large quantities of tamales to be shared during Christmas visits from friends and neighbors. In the two weeks before Christmas the posadas have been staged many times. These are the reenactment of the journey of the Holy Family to Bethlehem, Travelers go to the back door of a home and in song ask for room. The answer in song is that there is no room. The question and, answer is repeated several times and then the door is opened, the travelers invited to enter and join in a party. Some Latin American families i Christmas Eve observe the acostada at which a figure representing the infant Jesus is placed in a manger and sung to. And there are the piiytgs, small animal figures stuffed with candy. Children are blindfolded and swing a bat until they hit the fig-! urc and break it. Then there |t) a big scramble for the candy. The second largest waterfall in North America, from a standRQJAt of volume of water, is Gxand Falls on the Hamilton River in Latra- dor. The falls, over which the river diops 1,033 feet, is exceeded only by Niagara. •ri»*W.Jk 113 - U0» naL our f of i t •out tha i. It ffdr ,SfK'l. A%. V*L w«** *• rfda Hag Itici L
