The children of Russia, Italy and 1
Spain spend Christmas day in worship
■ their churches and receive their

! presents on January fi.
On this same day French children
have a great celebration and cut the
| "king's cake," which is a round cake,
usually, with a china image baked in j
it. Whoever cuts the slice that con
tains the image is king or queen for ;
the day, and the rest of the children !
must do everything the king or queen i
does.

In Norway and Sweden they have
Christmas services in their churches
at four o'clock in the morning and the
kind-hearted children scatter wheat
for the hungry birds.
