A Heath Christmas Carol

Heath, Aloïse Buckley
January 1980
National Review;1/4/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 1, p32
The article presents a humorous personal narrative about children's reflections on carols and the Christian religion. The children in the Heath family are bright, bonny and gay. And they can sing too. That is why every first week of December, the children prepare a Christmas carol program to be taped and sent to their grandmothers. In one particular year, the Christmas carol program was not accomplished because the children tried their hand at interpreting lines from a carol, the message of the carol and even the doctrines of Christian religion.
