Daylight to increase Summer is coming, you can be sure of that, but it may be awhile before you will want to pack up your parka.

Christmas always seems to draw the human race closer together. It is a time for love, childish laugh- ter and smiles. The Christmas spirit seeps into the hearts of everyone. It is like being in love for the first time. Our hearts swell with constant anticipation and joy. As a child experiences Christmas in his innocent manner, adults experience a moment of childhood themselves. Christmas Lakes us back to our child-like behavior. Once the Christmas season arrives, Deopie let their lifestyles take a turn, "e are concerned with cele- brating the birth of Jesus Christ, and so our attention is distracted from our normal daily activities. Funny how a brightly decorated Christmas tree can change the entire mood of a living room. Strange how the sight of a Christ- mas wreath brings a grin to your face. It is accustomed to our Christmas nature that we "light up" as our lighted windows light up this yearly eveat. One humorous detail to Christ- mas is the anticipation of un- wrapping all the gifts under the tree. It seems like children have more patience when it comes to unwrapping the presents than adults have. Just knowing that your spouse has bought you some- thing can drive you batty, espe- cially after seeing it sit under the tree for a couple uf weeks. Children climb into bed with anticipation of Santa Claus' arrival. They try to sleep, but are so excited that they can't. Mom and dad wait patiently for their childrens little eyes to close so that Santa can come to visit. Waking up extra early, the chil- dren rush to their Christmas tree, stand in awe, then run to get mam- ma and daddy out of bed to see what Santa has brought them. Yes, Christmas is a memorable time of year—a favorite to many of us. Sharing—giving, loving and celebrating the birth of Christ is a very tender moment. "' Celebrate this Christmas with many warm wishes, joy, peace and love. It comes only once a year! Merry Christmas everyone! errj» fjrtetmasf Five frocked at ceremony Five Navy personnel assigned to Commander Fleet Air Keflavik staff were frocked to their present rates in a ceremony held Monday by Rear Admiral Richard A.
