The man who died after a Christmas Eve fire in his Mount Clare home has been identified as Richard Saulsbury, 42, a resident of the 300 block of S. Norris St. for about six years, a spokesman for the city Fire Department said. Firefighters found Saulsbury, who weighed 300 pounds, unconscious on the floor of an upstairs bathroom about 11 p.m., said Chief Kevin Cartwright, the spokesman. Because of his size and trash that blocked the path, firefighters had to knock down an interior wall to move him out a window.

The St. Ignatius choir had barely finished its last "in excelsis Deo!" when Frances Kavanagh began leading a band of guests northward along Calvert Street. She first invited me to her Christmas Eve party in the 1970s, casually saying to drop by 913 N. Calvert St. She and her husband, Jack, were having "a few friends in." And so, for the better part of two decades, I spent the early hours of Dec. 25 nestled in an old Baltimore setting worthy of a perfect Christmas card.

Bobby Weinblatt had goodness in his heart and clothing piled in a big white box when he drove to Bea Gaddy's shelter on Dec. 24. Call it a Christmas mitzvah, a blessing across the religious faiths. Call it the universal impulse to help those less fortunate.Also, call it instant, open-mouthed horror the moment Weinblatt realized -- Oh, Lord! -- he'd absent-mindedly left money in the box of clothes before dropping it off.The money was lying there in checks -- signed checks sent to him by insurance clients and also blank checks, sitting right there, big as life, in his checkbook.

There is a most magical hour every Christmas season, and it is not the stroke of midnight on Christmas Eve, when the darkened church glows with candles in anticipation of a child's birth. It is not dawn on Christmas morning, when excited children wake their parents so they can see what Santa has left under the tree. And it is not that moment on Christmas night, as in "A Christmas Story," when parents tuck the exhausted children into bed and then sip a quiet glass of wine by a dying fire.

A choir will sing where school plays are staged and graduates receive their diplomas. Wreaths and banners proclaiming the Christmas message will adorn the walls and stage. The rows of seats in the Franklin High School auditorium will serve as pews. For 90 minutes this evening, the Reisterstown school's auditorium will be a house of worship, not just a public multipurpose room. Northwest Baptist Church, where lightning struck and caused a fire that destroyed the sanctuary in July, will hold its Christmas Eve service at the high school at 6 p.m. Rose Karolenko, a telecommunications engineer from Glyndon and a Northwest Baptist member, said making the school room feel like a church will be a challenge, but an exciting one. "In some ways it's good to get people out of their comfort zones and realize what's important," she said.

It was a Christmas Eve where, at least in some parts, procrastinating paid off in a big way. The day started with an unexpected shipment of 67 Nintendo Wii game systems -- the most sought-after, but hardest-to-find, item of the year -- arriving at Best Buy in White Marsh. General Manager Dave Wolf chose not to display the game systems to avoid a mob scene. Instead employees walked around the store telling people they were available.
