THE TIMES Page Two . a! -- Nt-ph- ! - 1 'Cr - IP'S! .v 8 X 8 8 Many Christmas legends and customs are part of the folklore of our ancestors in all parts of the world.

Is little known elsewhere In the world. In Eastern and Southern Europe, it is the Wise Men who arrive bringing gifts. In Hungary the gifts come from the Angels, in Poland from the stars, In Greece, St. Basil is the patron saint. Popular tradition has it that the candle we place In our windows at Christmas is a custom originated by early Christians to whom the candle represented the star that guided the Wise Men to the stable at Bethlehem.
