Corn Costumbernan di Pascu a Cuminza


E fiesta tipica di Pascu ta combine hopi costumber
y tradition e kerstboom, San Nicolas, luznan,
blachi di loranto, dunamento di regale, cantamento,
y hendenan ta manda otro carchi. Hopi di e costum-
bernan ey ta directamente relacionA cu nacemento di
Cristo y nan tin nan raiz den cumplimento cu cierto
obligacionnan di iglesia. Otro tambe ta basA riba cos-
tumbernan di pueblo, algun di nan tabata existi an-
tes cu nacemento di Cristo. Hendenan sabi, nos mes-
ter nota esey, no ta tur ora di acuerdo com cada un
di e costumbernan di awendia den tempu di Pascu a
bira un tradition di Pascu.

Cristiannan di promer dianan di iglesia no tabata
celebra nacemento di Cristo como un dia di fiesta
ward, manera e ta conoci awor aki centenares di
anja despues di Su nacemento. Reverendo Cyril Mar-
tindale, un historic Catolico, a scirbi cu e sorto di
festividadnan ey a ser rechazi door di Cristiannan


den promer tempu di iglesia, pasobra nan tabata aso-
ci& cu ritualnan pagano. Despues, celebration di Pas-
cu a keda introduce pa neutralisa e fiesta pagano di
adoracion di solo como Dios cu tabata tuma lugar na
Roma dia 25 di December. E palabra Christmas (Pas-
cu), segun Rev. Martindale, ta bini di e palabra den
idioma Ingles anterior Cristes Maesse, misa di Cristu,
y promer bez cu nan a tende e number ey tabata na
anja 1038. Na Hulandes nan ta bisa Kerstmis. Na
Latin nan ta jama dia di Cristu su nacemento Dies
Natalis, cual ta raiz pa e palabra na Italiano II Natale
y na Frances Noel.

Un splicacion pakiko tin bez nan ta scirbi Christ-
mas como "Xmas", ta cu e letter X na Griego ta
worde pronuncii como "chi" y e letter "X" ta usa pa
represent e number di Cristo. Aunque nan no ta di
acuerdo tocante e palabra di Norte di Europa cu ta
Yule (of Jul), un fuente ta bisa nos cu e ta bini di e
palabra Anglo-saxo pa fiesta, cual ta geol.

Pascu tabata un fiesta cu nan tab&ta celebra na
Europa segun e estacion di anja, cuminzando den e di
seis siglo. No obstante esey, na Merca e Puritanonan
di e colonia di Plymouth tabata contra tal celebra-
cion y nan a pasa un ley na 1659 cual ta boet cual-
kier hende cu celebra fiesta riba 25 di December.

Nan a revoca e ley na 1681, pero hopi tempu largu
habitantenan di Nueva Inglatera y e secta di Quaker
no Labatin ningun animo pa haci Pascu un dia di fes-
tividad. E colonistanan di Hulanda, mercenarionan di
Hessen, Alemania, durante Guera di Revolucion y
otro Europeonan cu a bini Merca a trece e tradition
di alegria riba e dia ey, di intercambia regal y tene
fiestanan riba e dia liber.


SAN NICOLAS. E colonistanan Hulandes a trece
pa Merca e tradition di celebra fiesta di San Nicolas,
den e di 17 siglo. E tradition aki tabata e precursor
di San Nicolas. San Nicolas tabata Obispo di Myra, y
segun nan ta conta e obispo a duna su tres rumannan


muher placa, asina ta cu nan bruidschat nan por a
hanja hende bin casa cu nan. Cierto version di e
storia to bisa cu e ruman muher di mas hoben, des-
pues cu e dos rumannan a recibi cada un un sacu jen
di oro tirn door di schoorsteen riba dos anochi sigi, a
cologa su mea bao di schoorsteen pa asina e tambe
por recibi di dj6. Di tres anochi e oro p& a jega. San
Nicolas tambe a bira Santo patrono di muchanan.

Na Europa, San Nicolas a bira un figure riba un
cabai blancu (of un buricu) bisti cu panjanan di un
obispo y tin bez e tabata carga un trki di mata pa
castiga muchanan malucu, y den e otro man un sacu
jen di regal pa muchanan cu a comporta nan bon.
Evolucion di e costumber ey di duna "egalo na fiesta
di San Nicolas ta inclui cierto aspectonan di e Tata
Pascu, un figure den kerementu di pueblo cu tabata
hopi conoci caba na Europa. E tabata bisti un panja
corA largu furn cu piel blancu, e tabata un hende di
bon humor, e tabata gusta fiesta y r tabata anima
hendenan pa sunchi otro bao di e mata cu jama
loranto.

Washington Irving, e autor Mericano, a duna un
description di San Nicolas di e colonistanan Hulandes
na 1809 y esey a haci6 masha popular na Merca. E
description di San Nicolas cu su binA den e poesia di
Clement C. Moore, E Anochi Promer cu Pascu, a
duna na public Mericano na anja 1823 un imagen di
San Nicolas come un homber alegre, cu tabata parti
libremente hopi regale, y tabata core den aire den un
slee.

CAMBIAMENTO DI REGALO. Cambiamento di
regalu na tempu di Pascu ta sigi ehempel dund door


di e Tres Rey cu a trese regal pa e Cristo Yiu: ore.
censia y mirra. Nan a recibi regal pa reciproca nan
tension. Tradicion ta conta nos cu e tres reynan a
jega dia 6 di Januari (Fiesta di Epifania) y den hopi
pais hendenan ta cambia regal e dia ey. Na Spanja
muchanan ta pone nan zapato pafor jena cu jerba
ariba e anochi promer cu Tres Rey. Durante anochi e
Tres Reynan ta core pasa tur caminda E jerba pa
nan cabainan a somenta, y na lugar di jerba e mu-
chanan ta hanja regalo.

Na Alemania e Christkind, un much cu ta mensa-
hero pa e yiu Cristo, tambe ta parti regal. Ta ser
bisi cu Martin Luther, e lider protestante, tabata
contra e secularizacion creciente di San Nicolas, y el
a trata di hala atencion di nobo riba e coneccion di-
recto entire celebration di Pascu y dia di nacemento
di Cristo. Nomber di e mensahero a bin bira Kriss
Kringle na Alemania; aunque tin bez nan ta usa e
number ey pa indica San Nicolas.

DORNAMENTO. Pino mata y taki tabata
worde usa durante fiestanan di Romanonan y otro
rito pagano. Pero e mata di Pascu, manera nos co-
noce te awor, probablemente ta bini di Alemannan.
Un storia Aleman ta bisa cu Christkind a scohe e
pino y a transform na nootnan di oro, apel y luznan.
Historiadornan ta kere cu ta e soldanan di Hessia (na
Alemania) a plama e costumber na Merca durante
Guera di Revolucion, y colonistanan Aleman tabatin
kerstboom asina trempan cu anja 1746 Door di e


colonistanan ey, kerstboom tabata na uso general na
Merca promer cu el a bira popular na Inglatera. Es-
poso Aleman di Reina Victoria, Principe Albert, a
introduce kerstboom na Inglatera na 1848. E color
berde di e mata y su takinan y color cork di e fruta-
tanan manera shimarucu tabata simbolonan di Cristo.
Cora ta e color di su sufrimento y morto, y color ber-
de ta nifich bida cu ta dura pa semper y eternidad.

E costumber di pone kerstboom den bentana of di
usa adorno cu luz ta un costumber cu ta bini di pone
bela sendi den bentana pa mustra e Christkind cami-
na. Naturalmente un strea ta simbolo di e strea di
Bethlehem, cual a guia e Tres Reynan na e lugar ca-
minda Cristo a nace.

PESEBRE. E pesebre ta
un simbolo important di e
nificacion religioso di Pascu.
San Francisco di Asisi ta e
promer hende cu a traha un
reproduccion di e stal, Santa
Famia, e bestianan, warda-
dornan di carn6, e tres Rey-
nan na 1223. Rev. Martindale
ta conta nos cu San Fran-
cisco a haci un cos pa laico,
local te e dianan ey tabata
un costumber di iglesia y des-
de e tempu ey nan a bin us
pesebre den casnan, riba plazanan den ciudad, y
otro lugar rond di misa.

CANCION. Gruponan di actor tabata duna pre-
centacion den catedralnan, y loke nan tabata bisa a
worde poni na music. E costumber aki a plama te
pafor di iglesia y ta origen di canticanan di Pascu.

Un di esunnan mas conoci "E Diezdos Anochi di
Pascu" tabata ser cantA originalmente huntu cu un
baliamentu riba e di diezdos anochi, despues tabata
sigi comemento di bolo. (E diezdos anochinan di
Pascu ta for di dia di nacemento di Cristo, 25 Decem-
ber, te dia di Tres Rey, 6 di Januari).

Na America Latina y na Aruba, e gruponan di
Aguinaldos ta sumamente popular den dianan di
Pascu.


CARCHI. Por ta cu e mandamento di carchi ta
origin den cambiamento di regal tempu di Pascu,
pero un autoridad ta kere cu popularidad di e cos-
tumber aki a cuminza cu cierto mehoranza den siste-
ma di post na Inglatera, ora cu nan a permit hende
di manda carchi di pascu pa prijs di dos placa den
henter Reino Unido. E promer carchi di Pascu conoci
ta di anja 1848 na Inglatera, litografia y cu su color-
nan pinta na man. E tabata mustra hacimento di
fiesta di Pascu y tabata duna tambe bon deseo pa
Anja Nobo. E promer carchi di Pascu Mericano, se-
gun hende cu por sabi, a parce na anja 1875.

How Christmas Customs Began


The typical Christmas combines many cus-
toms and traditions the tree, Santa Claus,
lights, mistletoe, gift-giving caroling, and
card-sending. Many of these customs are
directly related to the birth of Christ and
stem from church religious observances.
Others, though, have a basis in folk customs,
some present even before the birth of Jesus.
Scholars it should be noted, do not always
agree about how each of the present-day fam-
ily rituals developed into the Christmas tra-
dition.
Early Christians did not celebrate the birth-
day of Jesus as a holiday festival as it is
known today for several'hundred years after
He was born. The Rev. Cyril Martindale, a
Roman Catholic historian, has written that
such festivals were rejected by early Chris-
tians because they were associated with pagan
rituals. Later, the celebration of Christmas
was introduced to counteract the pagan feast
of the Sun-God held in Rome about December
25. The word Christmas, according to the Rev.
Martindale, is derived from the Old English,
Cristes Maesse (the mass of Christ) and was
first called by that name in 1038. The Dutch
word is Kerstmis. The Latin for Jesus' birth
is Dies Natalis, root of the Italian II Natale
and the French Noel.
An explanation of why Christmas is some-
times written Xmas is that "X" is the Greek
equivalent of the "ch" sound and the letter "X"
is taken to represent the word Christ. Although
the northern European Yule (or Jut) is of dis-
puted origin, one source says it may derive
from the Anglo-Saxon word for feast, geol.
Christmas was a seasonal celebration in
Europe from the sixth century on. Neverthe-
less, in the U.S. the Puritans of the Plymouth
Colony were opposed to its celebration and
passed a law in 1659 to fine anyone who feast-
ed on December 25. The law was repealed in
1681, but New Englanders and Quakers long
were reluctant to make Christmas a day of
festivity. The settlers from Holland, the Hes-
sian mercenaries in the Revolutionary War
and other Europeans who came to America
brought the traditions of merrymaking, gift-
giving and holiday festivities.


SANTA CLAUS. Dutch settlers brought the
tradition of St. Nicholas to America in the
17th century. His tradition was the forerunner
of Santa Claus. St. Nicholas was Archbishop
of Myra and was said to have given three
dowerless maiden sisters his money, thus mak-


ing them marriageable. One version of the
story is that the youngest, after her two sisters
had each received a gold purse dropped down
the chimney on successive nights, hung her
stocking in the fireplace hoping for her gift.
She received it the third night. St. Nicholas
also became the patron saint of children.
In Europe, St. Nicholas became a figure on
a white horse (or donkey) who wore the robes
of a bishop and sometimes carried a bunch of
twigs in one hand to punish naughty children
and a bag of presents in the other for good
children. The evolution of this gift-giver into
Santa Claus includes aspects of Father Christ-
mas, a folk figure long known in Northern
Europe. He wore a red robe trimmed in white
fur, was jovial, enjoyed merrymaking and en-
couraged kissing under the mistletoe.
Washington Irving, the American author,
described the St. Nicholas of the Dutch settlers
in 1809 and made him a popular figure in
America. The description of Santa Claus and
his reindeer in Clement C. Moore's poem, The
Night Before Christmas, imprinted an image
on the American public in 1823 of Santa as a
jovial, hearty gift-giver riding through the sky
in his sleigh.
DECORATIONS. Evergreens trees and
boughs were used in festivals in Roman
times and in other pagan rites. But the Christ-
mas tree as gen-
erally k no w n
probably was
o r i ginated by
the Germans. A
German sto r y
says the Christ-
kind chose the
fir and trans-
formed it with
gilded nuts, ap-
ples and lights.
Historians be -
lieve that Hes-
sian sold i e rs
spread the custom to America curing the Re-
volutionary War and that German settlers in
Pennsylvania had Christmas trees as early as
1746. Because of these settlers, the Christmas
tree was used in America before it became pop-
ular in England. The German husband of
Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, introduced it in
England in 1848. The green color of trees and
boughs and the red of the holly berry are sym-
bols of Christ. The red is for His passion and
death, and the green for everlasting life and
eternity.
Displaying a tree in a window or using light-
ed decorations is a practice derived from the
custom of putting candles in the window to
light the Christkind's way. A star, of course
symbolizes the Star of Bethlehem, which guid-
ed the Wise Men to the birthplace of Christ.

GIFT EXCHANGING. Exchanging gifts at
Christmas follows the example of the Wise
Men who brought gifts to the Christ child -
gold, frankincense and myrrh. They received
gifts in return. Tradition indicates that the


Wise Men arrived on January 6 (Epiphany)
and in many lands gifts are exchanged on that
date. In Spain children put out their shoes fill-
ed with straw on Epiphany Eve. The Wise Men
ride by during the night. The straw, for their
horses, is gone and gifts are in its place.
In Germany, the Ch'ristkind, a child mes-
senger for the infant Jesus, also brings gifts.
It is said that Martin Luther, the Protestant
leader, objected to the growing secularization
of St. Nicholas into Santa Claus and sought to
re-emphasize the direct connection of the
Christmas celebration with Christ's birth. The
name of this messenger evolved into Kriss
Kringle, although that name is sometimes also
applied to Santa Claus.
CRECHE. The creche is an important sym-
bol of the religious meaning of Christmas. St.
Francis of Assisi is credited with originating
a reproduction of the manger, the Holy family
and the animals, shepherds and Wise Men in
1223. The Rev. Martindale says St. Francis
laicizedd" what had been a church custom
and since then the creche has been used in
homes, squares and other places outside the
church.
CAROLS. Plays performed in cathedrals
during the Christmas holiday were set to
music. This practice spread outside the church
to give rise to carols. One of the best known,
The Twelve Nights of Christmas, was origin-
ally sung along with a dance on Twelfth Night,
followed by the eating of mince pies. (The
twelve days of Christmas are from the day of
Christ's birth, December 25, to Epiphany, Jan-
uary 6).
In Latin America and in Aruba, the Agui-
naldos (carols in Spanish) are very popular
during the Christmas season.


CARDS. Christmas cards possibly stem from
gift exchanging at holiday time, but one auth-
ority believes this custom's popularity began
with reforms in the British postal system when
cards were allowed to be sent at a uniform
penny rate throughout the United Kingdom.
A hand-colored lithographed card first was
sold in 1848 in England. It featured Christ-
mas merrymaking and wishes for a happy New
Year. The first American Christmas card, ac-
cording to some sources, appeared in 1875.
