Merry Christmas!

Yes, that's right. I wished everyone a Merry Christmas...because it still is Christmas. Christmas is a 12 day feast beginning, but not ending, on December 25th.

I have always been amused at how secular culture begins decorating for Christmas before Thanksgiving, but once Christmas actually comes, by December 26th, all the Christmas decorations are gone and we've moved onto New Year's and Valentine's Day. 

It seems to be it should be the other way around. We should extent Christmas celebration into the actual Christmas season, and not encroach on Halloween. 

So, to that end, 

Merry Christmas everyone!
