preach it sistah
Isn't Christmas Day always a bit of a let-down, anyway? Just a wee bit? That's why it's good we actually have 40 days of Christmas season to practice joy and get better at prayerful celebration. Of course, the Octave should be the most intense time of this, when we indulge not only in sweets and treats but also in stolen times of prayer and contemplation. Merry Christmas!
heck yes! XD we didn't even put our tree up until christmas eve, and it's staying there at least until epiphany!
