Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r The American Christmas tradition is English, although we don’t see much plum pudding these days nor do we feast on suckling pig with an apple in its mouth nor a fat baked goose, spiced wine or a Yorkshire pudding, which is a pastry-like cholesterol bomb. When the Christmas season is upon us, we think winter thoughts. Christmas is winter and snow and mittens and scarves. Always was. Always will be.

Christmas celebrates the birth, in Bethlehem, of a humble carpenter who heralded the age of redemption and forgiveness for all.

Not by chance do we celebrate the Savior’s birth during the season of the winter solstice. We celebrate during the dreariest days and the longest and coldest nights of the year when we most need companionship and assurance that winter can’t last forever. Oh no…. it certainly can’t. Never has, never will. The cold-country-people huddled and cuddled, built a great fire and sang songs of hope and promise. Carols – Christmas Carols.
