The Holiday Spirit

The Atlanta (Ga.) News

The attitude of Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy, the eminent Christian Scientist, toward the habit of gift-giving at the season of the Christmas holidays, attracts our attention, and raises the question of whether we are celebrating the birthday of our Lord and Saviour in a manner acceptable to him.

This season is, as we well know, one of prayer, and we are inclined to agree with Mrs. Eddy that there has come to be a spirit of commercialism in the bestowing of gifts at this particular time.
