In Spain on "Twelfth Night" all the

The First Christmas Day
Told For the Littlest Children
LISTEN dear little children, nnd
you shall hear about the very first
It was In a country across the sea,
far away from here, thnt some shep-
herds were watching their flocks one
night. The sheep were resting on the
grass, the little latubs were fast asleep
beside their mothers, but the kind shep-
herds were not asleep. They were
watching that no harm should happen
to the sheep.
Perhaps they were looking np at the
stars und the benutlful moon abore
them when suddenly there appeared a
wonderful light In the sky. brighter
than the moon, or stars, as If the sky
had opened and they saw the glory
within. . • r • • s -i •
Whits tbc shtpherdi w«r« looking UD,
wonderiutf wiint was the cause of that
strange light, a beautiful shining nng«.i
came near to them and said:
"Fear not. I bring you good tidings
which shall be to all people. This day
is born a Savior, and ye shall find the
babe lylag In a manger."
And suddenly the angel was Joined
by a multitude of the heavenly host
singing praises to God. This was their
Glory to Ood In the highest, and on earth
Peace, good will toward men.
When the angels *ia'' gone back to
heaven the shepherds said they would
go to Bethlehem nnd see this Savior
of whom the angels sang. They went
nnd found him, a little baby, in a sta-
ble. with no cradle to lie In, only a
manger for his bed. That little baby
was Jesus, who when he grew up said:
"Let the little children come unto me
and forbid them not, for of such Is the
kingdom of heaven." Ills birthday
was the first Christmas day, and ever
since that time we kept that day as n
Joyful and happy one.—New York
