Christmas celebration was held.
A few hours later the parish house
was the scene of the borough's first
Christmas celebration. The little tots
were ushered into the big room where
a huge Christmas tree with branches

was the center of childish eyes. Each
little tot was given a present of a toy

clothing, when such a gift was appro
