Christmas Days

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.

I am focusing on prayer, spending time with family — and more Christmas music (like Matt Maher’s “Silent Night” and Audrey Assad’s “O Come All Ye Faithful”).

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!
