It is interesting to observe that most people (and merchants, radio stations, etc.) seem to think that Christmas (a Christian observance) starts on or before Thanksgiving, while in reality it starts on Dec. 25 and runs until Jan. 6. Yet Christmas music seems to stop on Dec 26.
The time to wish a Merry Christmas should be Dec 25 through Jan. 6, but you sure get funny looks when you do so. A Merry Christmas to all who celebrate the real Christmas.
Oh, while I am at it, a Christmas tree is still a Christmas tree and not a holiday tree. Amen
