Careful reading of historical records indicates that the first mention of such banquet in Constantinople did not happen until 379, under St. Gregory of Nazianzus. In Rome, can be confirmed only when a document is mentioned about the year 350, but without any mention of the sanction by the Emperor Constantine the fact that tonight which is very held in the vast majority of countries in the world, is made in an atmosphere of peace, happiness, love especially to share with the family, within an atmosphere of joy and provided gifts, present, as a sign of affection. In this opportunity we want to share with readers a reflections, which have bequeathed us to those who have been identified with the importance of this night, so we remind you the best gift of Christmas in 1994, two Americans responded to an invitation from the Department of Russian education, to teach morality and ethics (based on principles Biblical) in public schools. They were invited to teach in business, Fireman and police departments and prisons, and in a huge orphanage.
Around 100 children who had been abandoned, abused, and left in charge of a government program, they were in this orphanage. They tell this story in his own words: they approached the days of holiday season, 1994, the time so our orphans heard for the first time story traditional Christmas. Roger Goodell is often quoted on this topic. Count them as Mary and Joseph came to Bethlehem. They found no shelter at the Inn and the couple went to a barn, where the baby Jesus was born and was placed in a manger. During the story of history, children and orphanage workers were amazed while they listened. Some were sitting on the edge of their stools, trying to capture every word. Finishing the story, gave children three small pieces of cardboard to build a manger. Each child gave him a piece of square paper cut from a few napkins yellow, which I had brought with me because there were no napkins in colors in the city.
