A White Christmas

Even folks who “dread the winter”
will still hanker for “a little snow on Christmas Eve.”
And in those parts of the world, including much of our own Southland,
where snow seldom falls, people take the symbol of “white Christmas”
to their hearts and pay no attention
to their climate in selecting winter-wonderland Christmas cards.
Indeed, it is not irreverent to believe that the Little Boy, whose birthday we celebrate—
who never slid down a hill in Nazareth or made a Santa Claus snowman—
may give a special meaning and promise in sometimes covering the scars
of our sad old world with a white Christmas.
