HOW THE CHRISTMAS TIME IS
CELEBRATED ALL OVER THE WORLD
Tho cclebrntlon of Christmas la
woll nigh worldwide and universal.
In almost ovcry corner of tho world
on this day are celebrations of joy
and throughout all tho world It Is
the great children's day. And every
country under the sun ha-? Its own
way of celebrating tho day.
Kngland Is tho homo of Christmas
colebratlons. The celebration Is moro
elaborate there than In any other
quarter of the globe. The celebra
tion lasts 12 days, ending In a hlazo
of glory tho twelfth night.
Before retiring for tno night on
Christmas Eve the stockings of the
children are hung by tho ftroplaco in
expectation of the visit of St. Nich.
olas. Early in tho morning tho llttK
ones are awakened by tho waits, who
slug under tho windows of the rich.
After tho gifts are found and hreal
fast is over, comes church and a
round of friendly visits. In tho cv
I cnlng comes tho crowning feature of
i.iu day, the winner. Tho boar's
head, the good old English rbiisl beer
and last of all tho plum puddfng,
combine to form a feast which mi'
bo eaten to be appreciated. In the
evening comes tho lighting of tho1
yule log and all sorts of Christmas
games, ending with the dancing of
the "Sir Roger do Covorly," In which
all, from the oldest to .ho youngest,
In Scotland little attention Ih paid
to ChiistmaB as a festival except In
the largo cities, whore eclobrations
much the same as those in England
Ireland celebrates v.nrlstmas in an
elaborate manner. Theie Is feasting
and gayety and masquerade, both
men and women, fill tho streets of
the cities and towns. Religious ser
vices arc held Christinas Eve and all
Ouristmas morning. Tho afternoon
and evening are given over to fun.
Next to England, Germany cele
brates Christmas more elaborately
tnan any other country. "Wolhnnch
ten" it is called in Germany, and It
Is tho ono great day of the year.

French children do not look for

Save for the religious services, there
is little celebration except In some
of the border provinces and in Paris,
tho gayest city in tho world.

Church of the Madeline to Port St.

In Alsace and Lorraine.
Tho simple-minded peasants of Al
sace and Lorraine provinces have a
Christmas custom which is followed
nowhere eUo. f lio day is a .religious
festival, and mass Is attended by ev
erybody. Later In uie day tho chil
dren are given presents, which usu
ally consist of nothing more than
fruits, nuts and sweetmeats. All day
tho children eagerly await tho com
ing of tho Christ chuu, a young girl
ulesscd In white and wearing a gilt
paper crown set around with burning
tapers. In one hand sho swings a
silver bell, and in tho other sho bears
a basket filled with all sorts of
sweetmeats. Closely following her
comes the devil "Hans Trapp.' ho
Ib called by the children. Ho fright
ens tho children and aBks In a gruff
voice for all those who havo been
bad during the year. But tho Christ
child Intercedes for the bad children
and finally distributes tho gifts to
in Austria and Russia.
In Austria and Russia Christmas is
a religious holiday, but tho children
aro not forgotten and presents nro
always prepared for them. There Is
also the Christmas feast which Is' an
occasion of Joy and hilarity. In Aus
tria, particularly, tho celebration is
very similar to that In Germany, al
though not so elaborate.

usually spent in outdoor sports and
the evening Is devoted to feasting,
dancing nnd a general good time.
In Servia ono of tho peculiar cus
