CHRISTMAS ACTS AS TONIC,
Happy and Exhilarating Mental Spirit U
Has Good Effect on People, De
Glare Medical Observers.
Close observers in the ranks of the
medical profession have noted one very
Interesting fact concerning the Christ
was season--that It generally has a
good tonic effect upon their patients.
In explanation of this the London
Lancet says that since Christmas has
come to be regarded as a time for
good cheer, a universal feeling of con
tentment and happiness is engendered I U
at this time of joyousness, routine is
for a while relieved, a certain fresh- U
ness is given to the daily round, dif
ferences of opinion are sunk, and a
charitable spirit prevails. Is it, by
the way, hoping for too much that theIU
season of good fellowship should leave U
some lasting effect upon the manners
and methods of all?
It may not he easy to trace exactly M
why this sense of exhilaration and
well-being conies with the advent of
Christmas, for the psychological fac
tors concerned are not simple. But
the main point is that the mental state
does everybody good, and the annual
festivity is just as excellent an insti
tution as the prescription of the physi
elan which gives tone and vigor to the
struggle in life's race. There is no
need nowadays, thanks to the good
sense of the people and the counsels
of their medical advisers, to moralize
about the evils of a stupid indulgence
In food, alcohol and tobacco on a fes
tive occasion such as the present.
Practically everybody realizes the
great physiological advantages of be
lag wvise on a merry occasion and the
disadvantages of being a foot.
Many more persons than fornmerly1
feel where use ends and abuse begin,
and they act sensibly accordingly ; and
so far from It being a crime to make
the season festive by enjoying, ona
little extendedI scale perhaps, the
creature comforts of life, some dtecldedl
good is done to both the mental and
physical health of the individual.
The festive season may. therefore,
be welcomed which brings cheek' to
thousands, which Induces the generous
and charitable to brace the mental and
p~hysical functituis of the commtmity
at large, givIng It the opportunity of
relinquishing its business and irs wor
ries for a time, to start again re
freshed and ready for "the trivial
round, the comnmon task." The pre-i'
scription "A Merry Chbristmas" is
sound so long as the "signature" of4
good sense is observed.4
