Christmas is a Season

It is most heartwarming to hear people still wishing one another, “Merry Christmas!” as Christmas is not just a day it is a season.  Every year it saddens me when the radio stops playing Christmas music at midnight as if Christmas has ended and now we must move on to the next big event.  Most stores have removed their holiday displays and have replaced it with Valentine’s Day Decorations and candy.  We as a society tend to rush our lives away and often miss the importance of the day.  The Christmas season officially ends after the Feast of the Baptism of our Lord on January 8th this year, although there are some who hold out for the Feast of the Presentation on February 2nd.  As we celebrate these days before the New Year begins let us always remember the tremendous beauty of the Christmas Season and keep alive the spirit of Christmas as we begin to formulate our New Year’s resolutions!
