ceremonies as could not be rooted
out. In the case of Easter, the con
version was easy. Joy at the rising
of the sun and at the awakening of
nature from the death of winter be
came joy at the rising of the Son
of Righteousness, at the resurrec
tion of Christ from the grave.
Some of the pagan abservances
which took place about the first of
May were also shifted to correspond
with the celebration of Easter. Many
new features were added. It was a
time of exuberant joy. All labor
ceased all trade was suspended. It
was a favorite time for baptism,
the law courts were closed, alms
were given to the poor, slaves were
freed.
Time
of Joy
In the reaction from the austeri
ties of Lent people gave themselves
up to enjoyment, popular sports,
dances and farcial entertainments.
In some places the clergy to increase
the mirth recited humorous stories
from the pulpit for the purpose of
exciting the Easter smile.
In many parts of the world people
exchanged the Easter kiss
salutation “Christ Is Risen”
the reply was made, “He
indeed”, a custom practiced
and the
to which
is Risen
in some
parts of the continent even today.
United States today observes the
Easter period as a time for quiet
reflection and meditation rather than
gaiety. Easter Day ends the period
of comparative quiet and the custom
has developed in this country to ap
pear in the season’s raiment.

Here it is! One of the most helpful schemes ever conceived,
for busy housewives. We’re planning new-type kitchens
so beautifully thought-out for more leisure, more con
venience ... so contrived to cut down on fatigue, dirt, heat
—even unwanted kitchen odors —that they’re called
Freedom Gas Kitchens”! Everybody’s getting together
.... kitchen people, home economics experts, Gas
refrigerator and Gas range makers—yes, even housewives.
So that, come peacetime, dozens of ideas on “New Freedom
Gas Kitchens” will be waiting for you.
