"Unto us a child is born"

Year by year Christendom celebrates the birth of Jesus the Christ on December the twenty-fifth, but the scientific Christian seeks to make every day a Christ-day. The new birth of the Christ, Truth, can come to human consciousness at all times of the year. Men and nations of the north associate snow and sleigh bells with Christmas, but south of the equator Christmas comes in the middle of the torrid summer. Christian Science invites mankind to rejoice over the fact that Christ is never absent, and to apply this fact to the healing of the nations. Mrs. Eddy has written (Poems, p. 29):—

Dear Christ, forever here and near,
No cradle song,
No natal hour and mother's tear,
To thee belong.
