Silent Night - from Haiti to China

THIS STORY APPEARED IN THE 12/21/87 WORLD EDITION (WEEKLY) AS this holiday scrapbook shows, Christmas trees wilt in the heat of Australia. Santa Clauses throng Tokyo's streets. There's feasting (in France), singing (in West Germany), and candlelight masses in communist states (China and Poland). But elsewhere the picture is sobering. Ulstermen sing No"el in the shadow of gunmen, and impoverished Haitians hope to scrape together enough money for a traditional pumpkin soup.
