Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 24, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta X-Mass or Christ's Mass By Caen Ely in Kainai News NCE every 12 months, people tile world over celebrate Christmas. Christmas trees, Christmas songs, I Christmas everything! For millions ol us Christmas lias come to mean giving, Santa Glaus, a Christmas tree, a turkey with trimmings, and beautiful presents. Somewhere along the way we have shed little light on ils tme meaning and captured only the commer- cialized concept of its essence. Whatever our view of Christ- mas is, it still boils down to the fact that Christmas is in actu- ality the celebration of the birh of Jesus Christ. I am not, what one would classify as a fanatic about religion, but from the time I was very small, I learned to know and love the JOYOUS HOLIDAY M GREETINGS Best of the season to you and your family!

The following are excerpl aken from the book, "Advent ts liturgical significance; Cha] er III, part 2. part 3 and pai 4. "The feast of Christmas date from the early fourth eenturj The first known reference Is observance was in Rome A.D. 336, but. no doubt it wa somewhat older than this dat >io sensible person will pi- tend, December 25 is hislorica y the birth of the inearna Lord. "The feast of Christmas, or the Nativity of the Lord, was originally chosen to counteract raise ideas which denied the true divinity of rother Valentine, 19, and An- derson Lilly, 19, were being treated for frostbite in hospital in this island community on Conception Bay 12 miles north of St. John's. The four went into a thickly wooded area on the island's north side Saturday. During the afternoon Valen- tine Richards, a diabetic, be- came ill. Mr. Richards and his son decided to remain with Val- entine while Mr. Lilly went for help. Mr. Lilly arrived at the com munity in an exhausted state around 10 p.m., Cpl. Dickson said. Snow driven by 35 mile-an hour winds had cut visibility to lear zero and the temperature vas around 20 degrees. After waiting several hours, Mr. Richards and his son built a shelter for Valentine and started out of the woods. On hand jar the. holiday... jolly good wishes to everyone.

Dickson said Mr. Rich- ards carried his son on his back but was unable to reach the nearest road because of exhaus- tion. He said Mr. Richards w. close enough to the road to hear UK sirens of an RCMP car carryir.g rescuers in response to Mr. Lilly's request. RCMP, members of the volun- teer fire brigade and residents discovered Mr. Richards .fcd his son around noon Sunday. A helicopter found Valentine about an hour later. cutting re- mains a traditional activity in this province where 90 per cent cf all land is Crown-owned. IGHTS for Christmas decorating can he a year-round source of a more cheerful mood in the home. Standard light bulbs, varying in size, shape, color, surface texture and light oulput, enable the family Christmas decorating ex- pert to come up with a distinc- tive selup. After the holidays the bulbs and cords are used for otter daily lighting pur- poses. Five suggestions for decora- tive lighting treatments for the holiday come from John K. Michel, consultant engineer for Duro-Test Corp., light bulb spe- cialists. In place of conventional strings of tiny colored lights on trees, Michel suggests Globelitc shapes of incandescent bulbs for a more unusual treatment. These are completely round, in sizes from 2VS to 5 inches and come in clear, red, blue, green, yellow and glitter finish. Use such light bulbs with a plastic vinyl electrical cord, called a zip-cord or speed-cord with safety rating and with special sockets for a do-it-your- self siring of lights. After the holidays, he notes, use them for chandeliers, wall sconces, overload ceiling fix- tures in halls or playrooms or with some of the new decorator models of bare-bulb table lamps which eliminate the lampshade and focus attention on the dec- orative bulb. Another suggestion is to at- tach a siring ot flamescent bulbs to wreaths hung from the door or wall. These give Hie effect of a gaslight name but are available in white, red. green, blue, yellow or gold. They come in various waltages but'Michel recommends the 5- watt size for this purpose. A third suggestion is the "candle-in-the-window" effect. Attach to eacli pane of a mul- lioned window one 1-watt Flick- er-Flamescent bulb. These tiny lights appear, through a mov- ing filameri effect, to flicker like a glowing candle. Another thought is to give plants on a tablctop atop, a buf- fet or in arrangements a "lighl touch" by using some of the colorful Flamescent bulbs set into the plants or arranged on branches of larger plants. I h a t e v c r the decorative I lighting you choose, select cords that arc safe for indoor and i outdoor use. (Newspaper Kntcqirise Assn.) Coming your way the nicest Christmas ever.
