Happy Christmas!

CHRISTMAS DAY! What a wealth of happy and hallowed memories these words enfold! This glad holiday of friendly gatherings and family reunions, this holy day of gratitude to God, the great Giver of all good, commemorates the nativity of Jesus, born amidst lowly surroundings, in Bethlehem of Judea, nearly two thousand years ago, the babe whose advent—according to the reckonings of time—ushered in the dawn of Christianity and dated the world's history and happenings, as either before or after that momentous event.

The "old, old story" of that first Christmas; of the star seen in the East which guided the Magi to the manger where lay the infant Jesus; of the shepherds who beheld the glory of the dawn, who heard the angelic message of peace and good will from the heavenly host—these Gospel narratives have come down the centuries with unfaded and unfading beauty, interest, and sacred associations for children and adults throughout Christendom.
