THE mention of the word Christmas revives pleasant memories in the minds of everyone who lives within the pale of Christendom. The season, unlike Easter, is a fixture in the calendar, and though theologians do not believe the 25th December was the actual natal day of Christ, the date has so long been honoured as such as to allow it to pass un questioned by the general run of people. Whether our memories take us back to the Yule-log and snow of the Motherland, or to the extreme heat of our Austral home, there are few indeed who do not cherish fond recollections of the chief festival in the Christian calendar.
