The party starts now and keeps going until the Baptism of the Lord because Christmas is a season!
So be countercultural and keep your decorations up, at least until January 13.
There are so many feasts during the Christmas Season: St. Stephen, St. John the Evangelist, Mary Mother of God, the Epiphany.
Why stop celebrating once the presents are given?
The Church wants us to continue our celebration through the new year. So keep singing those songs, because Christmas is all about God becoming flesh and that’s too big a deal to be done with rejoicing after just one day.
Check out the book from which Jackie quotes for the reflection in this video, Advent and Christmas with the Church Fathers.
Merry Christmas from Jackie and Bobby!
