Excitement grows as each new sign or symbol of this cherished holiday appears. Rehearsals begin for Nativity plays at schools. Christmas cards are addressed and closets are piled high with mysterious packages. Store windows glisten with dazzling • displays and forests of fir anil spruce appear on every corner. Parties are planned and tempting delights are cooked and baked. Carolers appear filling the air with lilting holday tunes, and the local community tree is decorated and lit. Finally ornaments are ten- . derly and nostalgically unpacked, stockings are hung with anticipation. Surely those are sleigh bells jung- ling faintly in the distance! The many legends that surround Christmas add to its aura of magic, and mystery. If bees can hum psalms, animals speak and cattle kneel in their stables, then surely any mira-. culous happening is possible! Arid so the excitement mounts! This wonderful time of merriment is also one of profound reverence. Churches in cities and country byways hold midnight services to celebrate the humble birth of Christ. It is the season of worship and rejoicing. Set apart by its majesty, mood, and magic, Christinas stands eternally outside time. As Christmas day approaches it seems that everyone is waiting forsome- thing to happen! All are caught up in the spirit of what might be. At long last we know what all the means...the miracle of Christ's birth which happen ed almost two thousand years ago, happens again in the hearts of people everywhere! Christinas is cherished as a religious holiday of unparalleled importance honoring the birth of Jesus Christ, by Christians the world over.
