Miss Behavior’s Christmas Facts

Dear Miss Behavior:

Here’s an idea: why not tell us some facts about Christmas that we may not already know.

Miss Behavior Sings the Antiphons

Dear Miss Behavior: 

I have noticed that at least four Advent hymns have similar words. The hymns are “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,”         “Christ, Circle Round Us,” "Blessed and Holy," and “My Soul in Stillness Waits.” Is there some significance to this coincidence? Maybe it is not a coincidence?

Sincerely,

Olivia

Miss Behavior Explains the Feast

Dear Miss Behavior: 

I understand that Saturday, December 8th, is the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Can you     tell me something about it? Does it have anything to do with Advent? Also, why is it a holy day of obligation?

Sincerely,

Mary

Miss Behavior Explains the Liturgical Year

Dear Miss Behavior;

Why is the Feast of Christ the King, which we celebrate today, considered the end of the liturgical year? Why isn’t this day observed at the end of December, if it’s the end of the year?

Sincerely,

Confused

From the Archives: Miss Behavior Hones in on the Holiday

Dear Miss Behavior:

Now that your column is being read in Albia, Iowa, Struthers, Ohio, and Canfield, Ohio, can you still use your old Thanksgiving column, or will you have to make some changes?

Sincerely,

From the Archives: Miss Behavior Goes to the Polls

Dear Miss Behavior:

I don't feel like voting. What do you think of that? Do you remember the story about the little old lady who said she didn't want to vote for any of the candidates because "voting only encourages them"? That's how I feel.

Sincerely,

Arnie Apathetic

From the Archives: Miss Behavior Prepares to Celebrate

Dear Miss Behavior:

Can you tell me something about Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day? They seem to come one after another. And is it OK to celebrate Halloween? Some people don’t think so.

Yours,

Marley
