The Spirit of Christmas

EVERYBODY talks about the spirit of Christmas. Do you know what it is? I believe that each and every one of us know what it is, live it, practice it, and believe in it.

Homes of Famous Americans

IN Alexandria town, hidden away on North Fairfax Street, is a house which easily qualifies as being the birthplace of American freedom. It is hidden away because, unless you know about it in advance or have a guide, you would never find it. It is entirely surrounded on four sides by business buildings; indeed, in order to reach it, you have to pass thru another building and out the back door.
