To morrow le. Christmas. It
is celebrated and commemor
ated as the birth day of Christ.
Theologians are not agreed as
to Us being; the correct date.
Llowever that may be, it is the
day recognized generally by
the Christian world. The day as
at present set is on the 25 ih
December, and was thus fixed
by Pope Gregory IV.who reenn
irucWd the Roman calender
which during the decay ol ihe
Ko in a ii empire had become
contused and unreliable; he al
so revised the ritual of the
Church, and the present cere
monies, an well as the perfect
and systematic government and
discipline of the Catholics is
due to the labors of this Pope.
This day is, throughout Ihe civ
ilized world, nude the occasion
of festivities and enjoyment.
It is celebrated with great
ponm and display in the Un
man Catholic and Greek
Churhes. Among Protestants,
the Lutheran and Episcopal
Cliurclies observe it ns a holt
day. Friday is a regular Inst
and abstinence day wiih Cath
olics, but when Christmas falls
on that day of the week a
canon provides tor a special dis
pensation. Krifckingle is a
mytlnt al person tg who is sup
posed to bring th.? children
present on Christmas eve. The
word, as used in English, is
corruption of the German,

translated is Cl.risl Chi 1 Fr
