It is not the purpose of this article
to discuss the origin of Christmas
nor to deal with any mooted questions
pertaining thereto but to say some
practical things with a hope of stin
ulating some interest in right observ
ance of the day feome of us do not
believe that Jesus was born on Christ
mas day and yet we have come to
uniformly observe the day as the time
of His birth Let that be as it may
the fact is that Jesus is the center
and heart of Christianity He is our
all and In all He came Into this
world as a man and therefore had a
physical birth whether that birth was
in spring summer autumn or winter
does not change the fact of His com
ing Since Christmas day Is the time
set apart for the observance of His
birth then the question naturally
arises How should the day be spent
The popular and prevailing idea seems
to be that it is a time for hilarlous
ness frolic and fun rather than a time
for seriousness meditation and wor
ship There is much to be said touch
ing the social side of religion and not
for one moment would we advocate
the elimination of merriment bestow
ment of gifts etc But these things
are all too often carried to the ex
treme and thereby come to be a sin
and disgrace in the sight of God The
Idea of gift is associated with the
birth of Jesus He was Gods gift to
the world and therefore the greatest
bestowment of special favor humanity
ever received He came to lift the
veil of night and gloom from sin
cursed hearts and lives and open to
them a pathway ot inexpressable joy
and delight Hence the giving of pres
ents to gladden hearts and to meet
actual necessities is a good thing and
is when rightly done religious and
pleasing in the sight of God It is a
far better thing to give to the poor
who are really in need and trust God
for the rewards thanto spend lavish
ly on personal friends with the idea
of receiving from those friends gifts
in return Such acts are selfish and
do not savor of the right observance
of Christmas dajs
It also goes without saying that
Christmas is a good time for the as
sembling of the family circle around
the old hearthstone enjoying hours of
social fellowship and partaking heart
ily of the Christmas dinner But
even this should not be allowed to
interfere with our worship and heart
devotions to God Certainly the drink
ing intoxicating liquors thereby re
ducing the finer senses of our natures
into beastly fiendish appetites is so
adverse and foreign to the question
under discussion we refrain from
speaking of it further than to say that
such conduct of necessity merits Gods
disapproval and dishonors rather
than dignifies the sanctity of Christ
mas day
Since Christmas is on Sunday this
year this article makes a plea for
the attendance on church services
both morning and evening How could
you better spend the day The reg
ular services will be held in all the
churches of our city To lend your
presence > and mingle your voice in
the chorus of some one of the con
gregations Joy to the World the
Lord Has Come will be honoring to
God dignifying to the cause and ex
ceedingly pleasing and satisfying to
the individual heart and life May
