Choosing a hat. When it comes to the. Choice of a hat do not get a Small Toque if the features Are Large particularly the nose. The tendency with too Small a hat will be to exaggerate the size of this feature. Be equally careful should the features be Small not to choose too heavy looking a hat and thin no matter How tall you amp re. Or the eager face of a child but for the most part the shadowy figures gave no hint of race or degree until at last the Little crowd gathered into a poorly lighted room where the flare of an Oil Lami it showed a Motley gathering of country people.

Until a Little later an outcry door opened and a Man Steppe fyn his shoulders White with glistening flakes. Quot it s mowing said the boy. The girl nodded but kept her eyes on the stage where four Small girls recited a Christmas poem in unison. Again the boys thoughts flew to the Mountain where the Snow was blowing and Curling and Drifting against a closed door and where the patient flock nose to nose and body to body for warmth pleated for the Shepherd who did not come. At last he moved restlessly. A vet get to go Quot he &i.id, a no you Hainet a her voice pleaded. A a it a a fearful storm a he whispered.

My husbands attention is not of the unremitting kind. He always enclose s a Christ s birthday. Its Date first set As december 25 by hippolytus. In 225 hippolytus a theologian announced that As a result of careful research he had determined that a Jesus was born on a wednesday on the Twenty fifth of he is regarded As the original authority for celebrating Christmas on that Date. A later theologian declared March 28 As the Date of Christ a birth. The belief founded on jewish traditions that the world was created at the period of the Vernal Equinox or about March 25, was taken by both writers As a starting Point upon which to -lsertheirc8lpuiauon&./ they held that thib would naturally be the period of the creation of the new order of things springing from the incarnation. Just when the Celebration of Christmas As a religious festival began is not known or at least has not been definitely established. It the is Dorian decre tals assert that the festival was established by Teles photos during the second Century but this authority has Long been discredited. Other authorities More highly regarded state that the festival of the nativity was instituted at Antioch in 3xu some of the christians of the Early Ages held their Christmas Celebration in april others in May and still others in june. It was not thought 1 Kely that the shepherds would Jive Bren watching their flocks by night in december even in India which is Apt to experience cold and Rainy weather at that season. Still it is the spirit of the time acid not the Day itself that is observed with such rejoicing and the to Christ Inas Celebration serves As a pleasant break in the Monotony of Winter hippolytus selected the actual birth of Christ As the beginning of a new Era while other theologians have placed the beginning at the time of Tho annunciation by the Sagols
