In this invigorating_ atmosphere Grosz was introduced to the delights of healthy boyhood.

Thereafter, until he mixed with the martinets of the local high school, his life was to be happy.

The smug plenty of Heilige Nacht was, in any event, never part of Grosz’s childhood.

It represents, with sardonic explicitness, that mixture of sentimen-

tal benevolence and which typifies many a German family in the

expansiveness of a feast. Amid this tumescence and sluggishness, much

of the holiness has been subtracted from the night.
