Christmas
Season
A modern version is 0. Henry's story - "The Gift of the
Magi," in which a husband sells his most treasured possession-a
gold watch-to buy a comb for his wife's hair, but his spouse
meanwhile has sold her long tresses to buy a fob for her husband's
watch.
Such was the spirit from which the custom of Christmas
gifts arose and such is the spirit in which we present the following
pages, mindful, however, that the commercialistic tendency too
apparent in the Christmas ala 20th century, stands in stark dis-
cord to the centuries of Christmas custom and conduct.
. -{.LF.

Interwoven with the fanfare, story-telling, cameraderie and
ritual of the Christmas season lies a wealth of warm human exper-
ience. Folklore consecrated by its years of unquestioned accept-
ance has imprinted indelibly the Christmas story upon the ledgers
of world tradition.
The three wise men, we are told, came from the East bearing
gifts and were 'guided by a single star which shown clearly in a
canopy of light. Pausing only for refreshment the Magi pressed
on to the journey's end -a stable doorway in a small Judean vil-
lage. Unmindful of the poverty-stricken scene they fell to their
knees and placed their gifts in the cradle of the poor.
