Boxing Day clip art

BOXING DAY.

Of all the joys the seasons bring (Anil most, alas! have flown away),

I dearly do delight to sing The pleasure* of a Boxing Day.

For then a host of smiling folks Are anxious their respects to pay.

Anil tell me (would it were a hoax !) That, "if I please," it's Boxing Day.

Those doleful waits, who've lain in wait, To scare my balmy sleep away,

Like bravoes who've despatched their job. Now clairh reward on Boxing Day.

The mi'kmaid, who deals out sky-blue, (Hertally's double-scored, they say.)

With smiling face, of rosy hue. A curtsey drops on Boxing Day.

The baker's man, who brings me bread. As heavy a* a lump of clay. And bricks as hard as any stone, I can't refuse on Boxing Day.

As I was walking in the street, I met the butcher with his tray;

He thrust the corner in my eye — I'll think of him on Boxing Day.

The scavenger, who plastered me, When dressed in wedding suit so gay.

Now hopes I " von't forget, d'ye see, As how that this here's Boxing Day."

My house on fire — no turncock found: My house burned down — he came to say,

He hoped that I'd reward his zeal, And think of him on Boxing Day.

The bellman, dustman, chimney-sweep. Bring up the rear in smart array,

And all get drunk, and strip to fight, To prove it is a Boxing Day.

Dickens was keenly touched by the lot of poor children in the middle decades of the 19th century. In early 1843, he toured the Cornish tin mines, where he saw children working in appalling conditions. The suffering he witnessed there was reinforced by a visit to the Field Lane Ragged School, one of several London schools set up for the education of the capital's half-starved, illiterate street children.

This applies to the United States, where Works published prior to 1978 were copyright protected for a maximum of 75 years. See Circular 1 "COPYRIGHT BASICS" PDF from the U.S. Copyright Office.

This file is also in the public domain in countries that figure copyright from the date of death of the artist (post mortem auctoris in this case Francis Alexander (1800-1880) and that most commonly runs for a period of 50 to 70 years from December 31 of that year.

A Christmas Carol Bob Cratchit Tiny Tim ClipArt image

"Why, where's our Martha?" cried Bob Cratchit, looking round.

"Not coming," said Mrs. Cratchit.

"Not coming!" said Bob with a sudden declension in his high spirits; for he had been Tim's blood horse all the way from church, and had come home rampant. "Not coming upon Christmas-day!"

Martha didn't like to see him disappointed, if it were only in joke; so she came out prematurely from behind the closet door, and ran into his arms, while the two young Cratchits[60] hustled Tiny Tim, and bore him off into the wash-house, that he might hear the pudding singing in the copper.

"And how did little Tim behave?" asked Mrs. Cratchit when she had rallied Bob on his credulity, and Bob had hugged his daughter to his heart's content.

"As good as gold," said Bob, "and better. Somehow, he gets thoughtful, sitting by himself so much, and thinks the strangest things you ever heard. He told me, coming home, that he hoped the people saw him in the church, because he was a cripple, and it might be pleasant to them to remember upon Christmas-day who made lame beggars walk and blind men see."

Bob's voice was tremulous when he told them this, and trembled more when he said that Tiny Tim was growing strong and hearty.

His active little crutch was heard upon the floor, and back came Tiny Tim before another word was spoken, escorted by his brother and sister to his stool beside the fire; and while Bob, turning up his cuffs—as if, poor fellow, they were capable of being made more shabby—compounded some hot mixture in a jug with gin and lemons, and stirred it round and round, and put it on the hob to simmer, Master Peter and the two ubiquitous young Cratchits went to fetch the goose, with which they soon returned in high procession.

Nativity manger scene crèche

Public Domain ClipArt Stock Photos and Images Outdoor life size nativity scene, image/editing/sookietex More about this image and story at Public Domain Clip Art - http://publicdomainclip-art.blogspot.com/2013/12/nativity-manger-scene-creche.html

Erected annually by the Church of St. Anthony of Padua at 154 Sullivan Street and Houston street, here looking south from West Houston street. The Roman Catholic Shrine church was built in 1866. It is staffed by the Franciscan Friars and is the oldest existing parish founded for ministry to Italian immigrants in the United States.

A nativity scene or crèche also known as a manger scene, or crib is the special exhibition, particularly during the Christmas season, of art objects representing the scene of the birth of Jesus.

St. Francis of Assisi is credited with creating the first nativity scene in 1223 at Greccio, Italy, in an attempt to place the emphasis of Christmas upon the worship of Christ rather than upon secular materialism and gift giving.
