The secular world is over Christmas now. The shopping is over; the presents are unwrapped. The focus is now on New Year’s celebrations.
But we Christians get to really celebrate — for days! (The Christmas season in the Church includes Epiphany and the Baptism of the Lord.)
Our User’s Guide to Sunday has some good suggestions.
Be sure to head to Danielle Bean’s recent posts about Christmas songs. Upcoming: “O Holy Night” (my favorite).
How are you celebrating?
Happy birthday, Jesus! And merry Christmas!
