Christmas in July


If this was December today would be Christmas.

Last night driving home from my Russian Film Class in Dillon I drove by a fully lit tree with hundreds of Christmas lights on it. A tad early in my mind although I did read where several companies are running Christmas in July ads hoping people will come in and buy their Christmas gifts now and put them on lay-o-way. Probably not a bad idea. It will be interesting to see how many customers come in to buy. I do know that many retailers do 90% of their business in December and after this past year they are probably really hurting.

I stopped doing Christmas a few years ago and quite frankly I have not missed it one bit. Way too much hate and anxiety to celebrate the birth of the Prince of Peace. Peace kind of gets lost in all of that.

I think that Christmas should be part of one day. Christmas morning and children should be the only people allowed to celebrate it. I am sure that Jesus would agree.
