Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 8 THE 1ETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, December 24, 1970 Special Yule services in Pass C h services are being 'planned for the festive season in the Crows- nest Pass, i Fathers Dennis Mac- D o n al (1 and Jim Hagel of the Crows- nest Pass Roman Catholic Par- ishes have announced that mid- night mass will be celebrated in the Holy Ghost Catholic Church Coleman at midnight, Psychiatrists say you re oerfectly normal if you re feeling tense and a lime de- jected despite the spirit of tha Christmas-Season. Likepractl- cally everyone else, you have a Christmas neurosis. It is also known as the "Bah, Humbug! syndrome." Symplons arc easy to spot In the middle of a Christmas party you want (o go home; you argue over what color tails should go on the tree: and on Christmas Eoe, as you rush to wrap the last of the gifts, there's a. burst of tears. One psychiatrist says, "Christmas puts an unusual strain on otherwise happy people." "It creates very high expectations, some so highthat reality tan never really match them. It is inevitable, the realities of Christmas contrast sharply with the highly fantasized memories of childhood Christmases. Inner conflicts _ arise when people try to act in ways they feel they should act. The worst thing in the world is to be told to be happy and loving when you don t feel that way. Mulls, particularly moth- ers, feel under some pressure to demonstrate their love for their families during the holi- day season by giving lavishly of themselves, buying gifts, baking favorite foods and decorating the house. 'Mothers may also burst into tears because they re ex- hausted', sous one doctor.

Charles Gate minister of the Anglican Church stated that a Christmas Service will be held in St. Luke's Anglican Church Blah-more at 11 p.m. Dec. 24 and will feature Christ- mas music and Holy Commu- nion.

Giving is part of Yule spirit Giving is part of the Christ- mas spirit. That's why The Sal- vation Army gladly gives its time to make this holy season more meaningful to those in need. The homeles one the unwanted one the the prisoner and yes, even the families of those incarcer- ated. Many others, too, are greatly helped because Salva- tionists everywhere sense the needs of the less fortunate in many communities, and do something about it.

New Year, CHRISTMAS Prop, EILEEN, JUD and STAFF THE GREENHILL HOTEL BLAIRMORE, ALBERTA PHONE: Bus. 562-2232 Res. 562-250-1 by CHAKLKS DICKENS That man must be a misanthrope indeed in whoso breast somv- g like a jovial -feeling is not aroused in whose mind some pleasant association are not awakened by tha recurrence of Christinas. Thcte arc people who will icll you that Christmas is not to them what it used io be; that each succeeding Christmas has -found soma cherished hope, or happy prospect, of the year before, dimmed of passed away; that, the present only serves to remind them of reduced circumstances and straightened incomes of the feasts they once to siciC'Cd on hollow friends, and of the cold looks that meet them now in adversity and misfortune. Never heed sttch dismal reminiscences. There are jew men who have lived. long enough in the world, who cannot call vp such thoughts any daij in the year. Then do not select the merriest day of the three hundred and tixty five for your doleful recollections, but draw your chair nearer tha blazing fire; fill the glass nnd send round the song; and if yonr room ba smaller than it was a dozen years ago, or if your glass be -filled tctth reeking punch instead of sparkling wine put a good face on the matter, and empty it off-hand, fill another, and troU off'the old ditty you used to ting, and thank God it's no worse Reflect upon your present blessings of which every man hat many not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some. Fill your glass again, with a merry jacs and contented heart. Our life on it, but your Christmas shall merry, and your Nea Year o happy one. Time to spread Christmas for ESPITE the fact that most adults complain about the extra work and extra expense, Christmas is a tinie of year when every- one wants to be, ex- pects to be and disappointed if they are not, happy. For very many it is a sad day, a lonely day because the tragedies of the year have taken their toll and the loved ones whose presence had al- ways been essential for a happy Christmas are not there. But despite the hurt, these brave people put on a happy face and greet all warmly. The warmth and peace of this sea- son help to heal the wounds of life. It is amazing that the joyous spirit of Christmas has gripped the hearts of all Christians since the birth of the Saviour and touches almost every hu- man being today. Would it not be wonderful if we could main- tain and spread tills joy all year long? We really could and should. Let us extend our Christmas rounds a little to in- clude a few of our bereaved and lonely neighbors. Maybe by our coming and showing that we care, it will be a much happier Christmas for all. -Rev. J. M. Hagel Crowsnest Pass R.C.

Our Best Wishes to All for A MERRY CHRISTMAS PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR KANANASKIS SERVICE STATION COLEMAN, ALBERTA OUR FRIENDLY WISHES TO OUR LOYAL FRIENDS In this busy world, it may often appear that wo neglect or forget thoso we hold dear, but at Christmas time we take this space to say that we value your friend- ship each arid every day! To each of you A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR From MANAGEMENT and STAFF SATELLITE RESTAURANT COLEMAN, ALBERTA It all depends on us N behalf of the Angli- can Church may I extend to the people of the Crowsnest Pass, wannest sea- son's greetings. For most of us Christmas represents a real change of pace. We go to par- ties, buy presents ami visit rela- tives. Generally it is a time when we do a little something out of the ordinary to celebrate the Yuletide season. But in the middle of all the excitement, what lies at the centre of .Christmas, the cele- bration of the birth of Christ, goes by unnoticed by the ma- jority of people. Characteristic- ally however, this is how God works. He never forces Himself on anyone. He is never unmis- takably obvious. His coming is always something like this: a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger. It is in the things that appear to be ordinary that He quietly of- fers Himself. The form of this Christmas will be the same as that first one long ago; no fanfare, no warning signals. But, right in the middle of the busy season He may say, "Here I am. I will give myself to anyone who will receive me." And at that point it all depends on us. Charles T. Gale St. Luke's Anglican Church Christmas sad time for many Christmas should be a happy time for children. Yet, for many Christmas is a time of sadness. Perhaps it's because their dreams haven't come true. They feel that maybe Christmas is only for others, not for them. But their dream can come true Tlie Salvation Army, with your help, can bring a measure of happiness to less fortun ate children. Remember, the joy that we give to others is the joy that comes back to us. SANTA VISITS 'PASS Scmla visited children In Blairmore Saturday morning and prior to meeting them in the Elk's Hall at Blairmore, where he distributed hundreds of bags of goodies, he rode up and down Ihe main street in a horse drawn sleigh._______ Old message still holds true Christmas humb 1967 or 1968, Simon and Garfunkel re- leased a record call- ed "Silent Night and the o'cl o c k The record begins with Silent Night but soon the words and music are blotted out by the reports of war, protest, drugs, suicide and other tragedies in short, the news overpowers the strains of Silent Night. Thus we still have far too many 'Scrooges' commenting on this great feast. To each one of us, there is announced the ever new mes- sage of peace and joy. The glad tidings of nearly years ago, are again proclaim- ed anew: A saviour is born; God dwells among His people. We must not allow that long- desired and precious message. to be blotted out here and now. John the Baptist pointed but the only way to realize this wondrous event. His message, his admonition holds true for each of us today concern, love and justice towards our brother.

Why? We have forgotten past enmities and misunder- standings; we have tried to share with those who have not been so fortunate; through words, cards and gifts, we have Christmas Budget Best For The Younger Set Until children arc old enough to earn their Christmas money, they should be given an amount to spend for gifts for friends and relatives. If they can, it is even better to make their own gifts. It Is important that they be encouraged to enjoy giving as well as getting, simple inexpen- sive presents. This is something that will help determine their future attitude toward money. If children are old enough to earn their Christmas money, but failed to do so, it can be pointed out that they will have to plan better for the next year. Perhaps there was no warning beforehand this year. WISHING YOU A MERRY HAPPY HOLIDAY Here's hoping that you nnd your loved ones wiif know every joy iii this Yuletide season. MICKEY FINN PHARMACIES BLAIRMORE COLEMAN broken down those protective barriers to reach out to others to express our gratitude and concern. In truth, is that not what John asked?
