It is quite generally acknowledged that our world workers look forward with pleasant anticipation to the vacation season; for to many such workers a vacation denotes a period of rest, idleness, material joys, or relaxation. Thoughts of change and plans for a cessation of daily toil seem to bloom perennially in the consciousness of mankind, and, like the appearing of the flowers, also indicate a returning outing season.

At such a time the Christian Scientist may rejoice that he has found the true explanation of the term "vacation." He learns in Christian Science that holiday is holy-day—the day of the Lord. This day is changeless; and the Christian Scientist further learns that he may rejoice, with Paul, that each day in the calendar is the day of salvation; that to-day one may grasp the divine Principle underlying the true meaning of salvation and demonstrate in practical experience Mrs. Eddy's words in "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 39), "Now is the time for so-called material pains and material pleasures to pass away, for both are unreal, because impossible in Science."
