Marquette, MI December 30 –Christmas didn’t end on the 25th… it Started!

If you went shopping the day after Christmas, you probably didn’t hear Christmas songs in the stores, and probably didn’t see many signs that Christmas ever came in the first place.  It’s bad enough that Christmas decorations go up the day after Halloween (sooner in some places)… but the meaning of Christmas seems to be lost on so many these days.

Every holiday deserves its own time.  Thanksgiving is an important holiday, and after that preparations for Christmas begin.  Most Christians know this time as Advent.  The  Christmas season BEGINS on Christmas Eve, and runs at least through Epiphany.  In fact, people in many countries exchange gifts on the feast of Epiphany – in memory of the kings or magi brought gifts to the newborn king.

While the Christian world will celebrate Christmas for a while yet, the secular world has already forgotten it happened.  I guess I’m not surprised that the Christmas Spirit doesn’t last all year.. but I am disappointed it disappears so quickly.
