The Grnndest of all Festival Days.
Its Origin anl Observance.
"Christmas comes but once a year," is a
proverb that perhaps explains and, to some
extent, excuses tbe wild excess into which its
observance Is. sometime turned. After a vear's
round of work and worry, trials nud tribula
tions, buffeting and bruises, hardships and bar-
russments, the arrival of the season of relaxa
tion from all the world's cares, and of a time
for rejoicings over the blessings of life, in the
exhuberatice of their spirits people forget the
moderation that is due so solemn and impress
ive an occasion. But hilarious happiness may
exist without boisterous dissipation or rude
As there should he a rational explanation for
everythingtbat occurs in human uffdrs aresume
of the origin and observance of this happiest of
the holidays will not ho out of plnce.
The word.CAriiifman is associated now in the
minds of nearly every nation and tribe under
the sun, with a period of festivity and rejolc
ing. And not only is this true to-day, but it
has been true almost from the time when the
angels appeared to the shepherds near Bethle
hem in Judea. saying, "Behold, I bring you
tidings of great joy, which shall be to all peo
ple." In searching for the origin of the word
itself, as well as for the customs and ceremonies
which it ushers in, we have to go back to adate
immediate!)' succeeding the Christian era itself,
Clement Alexandria, who lived and wrote about
the year 180 after Christ, said that some were
fixing tlie year and diy of Christ's birth even
then. About the same time, or even earlier,
we find a feast day being celebrated by Christ
ians, and called theu, as it is now, Epiphany.
The word Christmas was not applied to this
event at first ; it was simply a birth festival.
and held without regard to any particular time
or day. At length, as we have seen in tbe
time ot Clement Alexandria, some began to
fix a day on which to hold this birth-festival.
That day in Clement's time was thought to be
the 20. h of May. Fifty year later it had been
assigned to the Gth of January, which was ob
served extensively. Others fixed other days.
At last, after various shifting of the calendar,
and various chunges of date, it settled down to
the 25th of December, which has remained ever
since, and which date was established by Papal
There is not the slightest probability that this
date represents the actual time ol Christ's
birtb. Both the day and year are hopelessly
lost by the changes which have been made in
the manner of reckoning time since the event
occurred. The Jews had one method of compt
ing dates, the Romans tried to mend theirs un
der the reign of two of the Ciesars, but it was
not until the year 32, under the Empire ot
Justinian, that the method of reckoning time
from Chri-t's birth was permanently estab
lished. Hence our conclusion that there is no
probability, or even possibility, of ascertaining
with any ktudot accuracy the true date of tlie
advent. There is no questiou but that not on
ly the dates, but in many instances localities of
Christ's earthly labors and appearances are pur
posely bidden.from absolute identification. Hu
man nature is inherently p-ons to idol-worship,
and were ii possible to tell thu very
day of Christ's birth, or tbe exact spot where
ne was crucified aud buried, we should see an
exhibition of idolatry, entirely unparalleled iu
the history of the world. Therefore, both
spots and dales have been forever buried out
of our reacli aud sight, amid the rubbish and
wrecks ot ages.
If, however, we might give a guess as to the
true date, we should place it whero many of
the best Biblical scholars and critic place it.
in the latter part of September, or early iu Oc
tober. All the indications seem to point in
that direction. It has been asserted, with some
reason, too, that the early Christians, being
Hebrews, used to keep this birth festival in
connection with their Feast of Tabernacles
which occurred in eaily autumns, after ihe it -gathering
of the Iruits. Tbe 25th of D .'cember
is altogether too late. The shepherds would
not have been out in tho fields at night at such
a season. The present climate of Palestine ut
terly forbids the supposition. Whenever It
was, it must have been earlier in tbe season
than the 25th of December. The inquiry
arises then, "why was this date selected in
preference to any other V
There are several reasons for the selection :
First, uniformity was desirable, and as there
was no possihi lity of ever ascertaining the true
date, tbe 25th of Di eember was t-s good as any
other day. Besides, tbis di te was coming into
pretty general use at tbe liiue it was fixed upon
Second, the date Itself was not a matter of
much consequence. The important fact wh
to commcmorst3 the birth of Christ, whenever
it occurred. Accordingly we find t first the
earlv Christians celebrated a birth festival
without regard to any particular day. But it
was decided for church purposes that the test
val should be observed simultaneously, so at
length they resolved to fix It upon the 25th
of December to secure the result. The third
reason was more Important. The 25th of De
cember, or thereabouts, has been observed as
a period of festivity and rejoicing as far back
as we are ablo to tr ice history. Amongst the
ancient Greeks and R inuns, epecially among
the lattei. a feast had been ob.-erved about this
time of the year almost from the beginning of
the existence of the nation. It was called tbe
Saturnalia, in honor oftheir god Saturn, whom
they made the ruler of the earth, and the pro
ducer of Its fruits; or, in a word, the god of
nature. This festival at first was observed on
ly one day, December lilih; afterwards it was
extended to three, aud finally, by order of Em
peror Caligula, to seven, which would bring it
to its culminating point on the 25th. During
this festival all classes gave themselves up to
unrestrained liberty and merryment. "Friends
made presents to each other; school we're
closed ; tke Senate did not sit ; no war was pro
claimed, no criminal executed." SI ives put on
gay apparel, had unrestrained liberty, and sat
down at lar;e public tables andwerewaited upon
by their masters. Songs were sun, process
ions formed, services hi Id in the temples par
taking of a joyous character, and universal
good feeling and good will ruled the hour. All
this was before the lime of Christ, running
back over 030 years.
But a festival al this time of tbe year was by
no means confined to the Latin race. Among
the northern Scandinavians tribe and nations,
inhabiting the countries now known as
Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Iceland;
among the Gauls, or ancient Germans, and
among the Celts, Inhabitants of ancient France,
similar festivals were observed with similar
rejoicings. The Scandinavian nation, the Cell's
and Germans, the ancient Saxons, our fore
fathers, kept tlieir "Yule festival" on this day,
which lestival i almost tbe exact counterpart
ol our modern Christmas. Houses were decked
with evergreens; songs and carols were sung,
the wassail bowl passed freely round; visiting
and feasting became general, and universal joy
and rejoicing became tbe order of the lime.
And this Yule festival runs back as far as we
can trace anything, into the very dawn or twi
light of history.
The explanation of tbis Yule festival Is as
follows: About tbe 25th of December, or a few
days before, the sun reaches his most distant
southernmost point, the Tropic of Cupricorn
and then commences his return journey north
ward. This date, therefore, in reality marks
the beginning ot a new year, and when we re
member the fact that the sun stood to tbe
heathen world as the best representation of
their good, aud as most intimately connected
with him, we can easily see how, as tbis sun
began to ceme back towards them, after going
away steadily lor a long time, they would be
led to regard it as the return of God himself,
and thus break out into demonstrations of joy
and expressions ot gratitude, or suu began to
come back, they could easily see in prospect
green fields, waving harvests and renewed ac
tivity in all the pursuits and pleasures ot life
This r turu conveyed to their heathen minds
the idea of continued favor and propitiation,
and a new grant or lease of continued exist
ence. And so tbey gave themselves up to a.
joyous celebration of this return in the manner
It is not surprising, therefore, that tbis birth
of Christ should have drifted naturally and al
most insensibly toward this season ot the year,
and not surprising either, that the ruling pow
er of the Papal Church should have decreed
this to be the permanent date. For it fell
in with the prevailing customs and tendencies
of the age, and so made it easy work to estab
lish its observance. Accordingly, a high mass
was ordered in honor of the day. which gradu
it 'y became known and designated at Christ's
mass, or, in our shortened pronunciation.
Such, in brief outline, is the origin and import
of our time-honored aud wonderful holiday. It
signifies literally a birth festival in honor of the
advent of the Prince of Peace.
