See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient with it until it receives the early and the late rains. - James 5:7

Bye Santa!


I'm reluctantly taking Christmas down today. I'll leave the exterior lights and decorations up for awhile longer though. I loved Christmas this year - it was so unusually peaceful and quietly contemplative. I hate to see it end. I keep Christmas from December 6th through January 6th. Despite the fact some people consider it liturgically incorrect, I can do that because I am neither a church or a religious community.

  1. Dec. 6 is St. Nicholas - how wonderfully appropriate to start Christmas then!

  2. I, too, hate to see Christmas end. It's my favorite time of year.

  3. Terry,
    Oh, hell, just leave the lights up all year.
    Pretend you're a hillbilly.

  4. I love Christmas decorations, well done, of course, in a home! I leave mine up until the Feast of the Epiphany, never any later. I put them up in early December, too. Right now, I'm looking for a really nice, complete, nativity scene to add to my collection.
