There has only been one Christmas...the rest are Anniversaries~W.J. Cameron


Christmas is celebrated on December 25th and commemmorates the birth of Jesus Christ. The word Christmas is derived from the Old English word "Cristes Maesse" which literally translates to Christ's Mass. Although no one knows for sure the exact date of Christ's birth, the date chosen to celebrate it is related to the Roman Saturnalia festival that lasted from the 17th-21st of December. This date was chosen somewhere during the 4th Century AD by the heads of the church. The date became widely accepted by most branches of Christianity with the exception of the Armennians who reserved the 6th of January for Christmas celebrations.

During the reformation of the 19th century there was some disfavour with Christmas and its associations with paganism. Many protestants distanced themselves from the tradition. However, by the latter part of the 19th century the celebration of Christmas grew widespread. It was around this time that the modern Christmas tree was introduced in Britain. 

Santa Claus became part of the christmas tradition around the Middle Ages, however his part in Christmas was not popularized until after he was depicted as a jolly stout man wearing a red and white suit in the 19th century. The character of Santa Claus is said to be inspired by Saint Nicholas of Myra, a bishop, who went around giving the poor children of the village gifts.


Angel Trees


 

Every year in the Beulah/Hazen area there are Angel Trees in various businesses and locations. The Angel Trees are to  help those who may do without for Christmas. The Angels can range in age of 1 month to 100 years old! I hope that all our "Angels" will be taken care of during this month. The WARC takes food donations as well to help insure the families aren't hungry during this joyous season. I want to Thank You in advance for all you do to help our communities take care of each other. 

I have always thought of Christmas, when it has come around, as a        good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year when Men and Women seem to open their shut     up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were  fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. ~ Charles Dickens  

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
