"INK In my VEINS" By MARIAN INMAN : ', • - ''.- - •.•:•.'..• ;•,' f .'• ;• :. •;"••':• • '/ •.; ,. • • : •• • '. Of all the old festivals, that of Christmas awakens the •strongest and most heartfelt assdciatidns. there is a tone of solemn and sacred hatloWed and elevated enjoyment, said Wash* ington Irving in his 'Christmas Pajters.' ' We heed Christmas. It f». a sftrt of oasis in the lonq iourney of the year, through how many centuries, through how many threatening circumstance*, hat Christmas been celebrated since that erv came ringing down through the > ages, "Peer not: for, behold, I bring vou good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For linto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord." Christmas is celebration, but the traditions that cluster • sweetly around the day have .significance only if they translate the heart's intention, the yearning of the human snirit to embrace and express faith and hope and love. Without this 'intention, the gift is bare, and the celebration a touch of tinsel, and the time without meaning. As these attributes, an example of the divine spark in man, from the first Christmas have survived the pressures of relentless time, so do they shine for us on this Christmas day. • Faith and hone -and love, which cannot be bought or sold or bartered hut only given away, ar* the welUprinos, firm and deep, nf Christmas celebration. These are the gifts without orice, the ornaments incapable of imitation, discovered only within oneself and therefore unions. ' Thev are not alwavs easy to come by, but they are in unlimited supply, ever in the province of all. ••• "Heap'on more wood: i The wind is chill; s But let it whistle as it vill.

But do not lo«e faith in Christmas in the rush of worldly thinq*. As Christmas comes, store uo an inner faith and security in your heart and pass it on. Snv to yourself, the world is lovplv, the^world is beautiful. Do not be dis- rourao»d. for as lonq a* men cherish and work for their families, children 06 to and from school, women clean and keen their homes pleasant and happy, so long as the, church bells ring in the frosty air, we have a world worth living for. On Christmas Eve we light the candles in the windows to light the Christ Child in, and this is a testament of faith. I hope that the real spirit of he Christ Child will burn in our hearts as clearlv as the pointed candle flame. Be mindful always that it is the flame that matters. • Here is a list of things that are not always easy to do but pay in the long run. It is hard To begin all over again.
