Christmas Isn’t Over Yet!

In my “day job,” I find myself in just about every department and/or grocery store in Acadiana. All of them have already clearanced out their Christmas merchandize and moved on to, believe it or not, Mardi Gras. It’s depressing, because it reminds you of how you felt after you opened all of your presents on Christmas Day: the fun was over, there was nothing more to look forward to.

As I grew older (not grew up, mind you) I learned that Christmas isn’t just one day, at least not for most Christians: it’s a season, one that’s traditionally twelve days long, hence the title of the classic song, “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Some denominations of Christianity even celebrate Christmas until February 2nd, Candlemas, which celebrates the day that Mary and Joseph presented Jesus to Simeon according to Jewish custom.

So don’t feel sad that Christmas is over, because it’s not. We still have until the Feast of Epiphany on January 5th, which commemorates the visit of the Magi to Jesus.

So continue enjoying those Christmas lights, carols, and shows you recorded but haven’t watched yet!

“O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.”
