"The celebration of the Feast of Our Lord's Nativity is a universal one and so in many parts of the world the Christmas festivities take place beneath tropical skies. This is true of our southern neighbors. The Mexican Crhistmas is a holiday of birds and flowers welcomed with exploding fire-crackers. To most of us in the United States there is something wrong with a green Christmas. Our spirits mount highest when there is a thick mantle of snow on the ground, frost in the air, and a roaring fire on the family hearth. .The children of Our Lady of the Snows have preserved a tradition which we happily share. English and French alike make merry throughout the Dominon. Old English traditions and the Catholic heritage of the French make for memorable Christmas tides whichonce shared are not soon forgotten. .." -from the introduction. [GB 260].
