Christmas Eve

NEWS
Susan Reimer | December 24, 2012
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.

John Ragan concedes that he is neither computer-savvy nor very much interested in using the Internet. "I'm not an Internet-surfing kind of guy," the 30-year-old carpenter said recently. But it was his occasional foray onto MarylandWhitetail.com that prompted Ragan to put a classified ad on the hunting-based website, offering to sell all of his bowhunting equipment for the $600 he figured he needed to buy Christmas presents for his family. Ragan, who grew up in Baltimore and now lives in Westminster with his wife and their two children, 12-year-old son Trenton and 9-year-old daughter Hayley, needed the money after he was laid off from a few sub-contracting jobs in recent months because of the economy.

Four more days remain until St. Nicholas arrives. By this time next week, there will be nothing left but leftovers. Last weekend in church, our minister blessed the straw in the manger. The story goes that if a husband/father takes a piece of straw and keeps it in his wallet or pocket, his family will never go hungry. May that be my wish for you and yours. The Ladies Auxiliary units from Singerly, North East, Rising Sun, Chesapeake City, Perryville and Water Witch fire companies gathered at North East Fire Hall for their quarterly dinner meeting.

All these years later, the interior designer and his wife Maureen make regular Christmas pilgrimages to Williamsburg, Va., which has become the inspiration for his holiday decorating. "It is homey. It is real. The greens, the fruit.

On the 10th day of Christmas, someone's true love gave them 10 lords a leaping. At the Carroll County Farm Museum, in Westminster, that gift was a little bit challenging for Beverly Rose and Dorothy Duerr, who were tasked with displaying that scene in the dining room. "Ten lords a leaping? How do you do that?" Rose asked rhetorically - before revealing a small tree decorated with fruit ... and 10 paper cutouts of lords a leaping. "We thought it should be cheerful," added Duerr about the room's decorations, which feature festive garland and a table set for a Christmas Eve feast of turkey, soup, vegetables and more.
