It's Still Christmas

I have heard and seen numerous proclamations that Christmas is over. But it’s not. It’s only the second day of Christmas. The good news of the Word becoming flesh and pitching tent among us is too grand to be adequately celebrated in one day. “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is more than just a song, it refers to an actual twelve days of Christmas (ending with Epiphany on January 6). So go ahead, keep celebrating. Perhaps, with the rest of the world’s attention now turned elsewhere, those of us who claim the name of Christ can use the opportunity to really focus on the season’s true meaning.
