Epiphany

My  yearly irritation has been renewed–neighbors whose tree and symbols of  Christmas are on the trash heap by

6 a.m. December 26th.

The twelve days of Christmas are lost to modernity, apparently.  Like most of you, I am at warp speed visiting with relatives and students home for Christmas break and this may be fortunate for it means I have too little time to rant at length on this topic. But please, lovely Christian people, please “keep Christmas” all the way to the Epiphany.

  1. Part of the problem is that we don’t give Epiphany its proper due (i.e. shoving it back to the nearest Sunday) and the other is having only the merest chemical traces of understanding what Christmas is.

    When we do all this, it’s no wonder Christmas is a “day” and not a season.

    Oy.
