** ** *** -NueVO Ataque a Inmigrantes
Pegunta: Me Ilamo Juan Garcia y soy originario de Mexico.
Vivo con mi familiar hace quince aflos en este pais. Mi her-
mano, ciudadano americano, envid una petici6n familiar para
resolver nuestra situaci6n de inmigraci6n hace cinco ailos, y
a aun estamos esperando que nuestra residencia permanent
(visa de inmigrante) salga. Mis hijos han nacido en este pais y
yo los consider los nuevos americanos. Hablan ingles perfect
sin acento, aunque el espanol lo hablan muy mal. Conocen la
cultural mexicana muy poco y desgraciadamente no les interest
much. Piensan como americanos y no conocen mi pais, ni a
la mayoria de sus parientes. Sus calificaciones en la escuela

a m estan en la misma situaci6n legal que yo, que se aprobara una
ley que ataca al inmigrante. Me refiero al proyecto: The Bor-
der Enforcement and Immigration Enforcement Act of 2005
o H.R.4437. Iltimamente se ha oido sobre esta propuesta. Yo
se que no es ley todavia y que fue presentada en el Congreso
a el 14 de diciembre del 2005. Se muy poco de esta propuesta,
me podria informar mas, pues segm algunas personas si
r esta ley pasara seria ago terrible para nosotros los nuevos
inmigrantes de este pais.g~Es esto cierto?
Repuesta: Sefior Garcia tiene much raz6n en 10 que dice.
Hasta hora no he conocido ningfin mexicano, hondureflo, sal-
vadoreflo, etc. terrorist. Estoy seguro que los padres, abuelos
o tatarabuelos de estos congresistas que estan a favor de pasar
a e emeespecialmente esta propuestas(H.R.4437), estarian verdadera-
mente furiosos con las infames propuestas.
La propuesta de ley H.R.4437, si se hiciera ley, afectaria
hasta las personas residents permanentes y limitaria los
derechos de los ciudadanos americanos. Por ejemplo seria

The tree consisted of a shrub
that grew in the nearby sierra
in the shape of the traditional
Christmas tree. We would pick
the right size, cut it and let it
dry for a few days. Once it was
dry enough all the leaves would
be shaken or plucked off and
it would be set for decorations.
There were no lights or tinsel or
any of these things that we now
consider a Christmas must.
There were no gifts under the
tree, only a nativity scene set

sierra.

Tree. Actors would portray the fall of Adam and Eve, with the
evergreen standing for Paradise and man's fall, but also the
promise of salvation.
In the 16th century, the first offcial Christmas tree was re-
corded at Strasbourg, Germany. The tradition of the Christmas
tree was brought to the United States by Hessian soldiers hired
to fight for England in the Revolutionary War. That tradition
,, was further spread in the 1830's by German settlers in Penn-
) sylvania. In 1841 Prince Albert set the first English Christmas
u. tree at Windsor Castle for the holiday pleasure of his wife,
Queen Victoria.
~As the history of the Christmas tree has been documented
for years, many legends have arisen regarding the origin of
the Christmas tree. One oft repeated legend tells the tale of
St. Boniface, a missionary who spread Christianity through- 4C
C' out France and Germany in the 700's. This story tells that St.
.. Boniface came upon a group of folks who had tied a child to an
oak tree as a human sacrifice to their pagan god, Thor. To save
: ? the child, St. Boniface felled this oak with one blow. As the tree
j split, a beautiful young fir tree sprang forth. St. Boniface used
this instance to show these simple people how the branches of
the fir made an arrow pointing to heaven, and that the fir is a
holy tree, a symbol of the Christ Child and promise of eternal
life. St. Boniface instructed them to take the evergreen into their
homes and to surround it with gifts. This legend is said to be
the origin of the Christian tradition of the Christmas tree.
Another beautiful legend of the Christmas tree depicts the

Christmas is a season rich in tradition. From the turkey to
the tree, they all have their place in Christmas history -- even
the Christmas candle. We use candles for many occasions --..
birthdays, weddings, and to create a desired atmosphere. But
there is a tradition behind Christmas candles that goes further
than the turkey.
Through the centuries, candles have been offered as gifts and
used to ward off darkness. The first use of candles at Christ-
mas was during the Roman festival of Saturnalia. Tall tapers I:
of wax were given as gifts to guests and offered to Saturn as a
symbol of his light.
The Pagans also used candles during Yule festivities. Can-
dlelight and bonfires were used as symbols of the sun, and a
farewell to the past seasons as well as a welcome to the begin- I ., p~
ning of a new cycle of seasons.
As Christianity spread, candles were placed in the front
window to guide the Christ Child as he wandered from house.
to house on Christmas Eve. In some parts of Europe, this tradi-
tion still continues. In Sweden, St;. Lucia is still celebrated with

Chanukah is also known as the Festival of Lights. Duririg 7

Kwanzaa's central practice is the lighting of the mishumaa

Saba (Seven Principles).
Although Candlemas was originally a Pagan festival to cel-
ebrate purification, Christians now celebrate it on February
2, the 40th day after Christmas. It is a day representing and $
honoring Christ and Mary's purification in the temple.
During the Victorian era, candles were used on Christmas
trees and were considered a symbol of the Star of Wonder.,
Often, various merchants and tradesmen would give a bundle
of pine-oil perfumed tapers, tied together with ribbon as gifts l LeeY
to their loyal patrons.
Today, scented candles continue to enhance Christmas. Pine,
cinnamon and gingerbread spice are just a few of the scented
candles that have become popular over the years. Even little
tea-lights help to spread the wonderful smells of potpourri.
Christmas dinner isn't the same without a couple of candles.
Fringed with small wreaths or majestically standing in heirloom
'IC candlesticks, their warm glow cradles the faces of family and
friends; and adds brilliance to the golden hue of a table laden
heavy with feast.
This Christmas continue the tradition of candles in your
decor. Enjoy their colors, aromas and light as they add a touch
of magic to a wonderful time of year.

Long ago, people believed that they could use bells to frighten coe
away evil spirits. Bells were a simple form of noisemaking. They
c could be easily obtained or made and everyone knew how to use
them. Many people thought that as winter began, evil spirits
would come to harm them. So during the dark days after the
harvest or the hunt, people would engage in ceremonies to
keep bad things from happening to them while they waited for
Spring and warmer days.
The tradition of using noisemakers like bells during these
times carried over into the celebration of Christmas. But instead
of making noise to keep away evil things, people made noise to
celebrate something happy.
In many villages, there was a church and most churches O 0
had a bell. When something important was happening such as O o
remembering the birth of Jesus Christ they would ring the bell. O o 0 O rdO o
You might hear this saying at Christmas: "Every time a bell
rings, an angel gets his wings." Most people remember this say-
ing from the movie "It's a Wonderful Life". But over a hundred a o a
years a'go, this was a very common saying amongst kids.
Back in those days, kids believed that making noise was o
just a part of Christmas. And bells were an easy way to make
that noise. Bells were inexpensive musical instruments that d O
people could take with them caroling or wassailing and almost r
every family had one or more. Bells also provided a bright and
cheery sound and were acceptable to parents as proper tools O o O
to celebrate and make noise at Christmas. ---o Q- O O
Bells play an important part in other areas of celebrating
Christmas. Some people probably picture Santa's reindeer with
bells draped over them for decoration. Santa might also use bells "They're on standby in case the Delta pilots strike."
to help find the reindeer in the dark or mn the fog or snow.
And bells have always had a place in Christmas songs. The
famous Christmas hymn I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
began as a poem written by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in the
1860s. The poem was actually about the tragedy one felt during
the civil war. Some of the lesser known verses go like this:
Then from each black accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The carols downed
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!
It was as if an earthquake rent BnN tl ei aia
The hearthstones of a continent
And made forlorn
The households born
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!
And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men!"
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead; nor doth he sleep!
1i, The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, goodwill to men!"
Christmas bells are remembered in classic holiday songs
such as "Jingle Bells," "Silver Bells," and "Christmas Bells are
Ringing." Bells make a happy sound and are enjoyed in "ringing
out the old and ringing in the new" each season as has been
done in times past.
