    In the gloom of this holy Christmas night, a cold sleet fell. It was not a night for man nor beast but yet here they were.

Defeat after defeat, at places like Long Island, Harlem Heights, Fort Washington and White Plains...

Paterson and Trenton schools also close that day. Public schools across the nation have traditionally closed for major Christian holidays including Christmas and several days before or after Easter, and many also close for Jewish holidays as well.
