Christmas

The Queen of England has two birthdays. Her actual birthday is April 21, but the decision makers wanted to celebrate it when the weather is more pleasant, so her official birthday is the second Saturday in June. In parts of Eastern Europe Jan. 6 is still celebrated as the birthday of Jesus, while in the west we observe Dec. 25. Since we don’t know exactly when Jesus was born, Dec. 25 is just as good a day as another. Perhaps it is best to think of celebrating the birth of Christ every day.
