  1. My mother used to ask me: “Have you taken down your Christmas tree and decorations yet?”
    I would tell her that I was following the tradition in Scandinavia and I had until the feast of St. Canute on January 19.

  2. For many of us Christmas has just begun…
    Христос родился! Christ is born! Glorify Him! Merry Christmas for and from all those on the traditional church calendar.

  3. Liturgically, we in the West have until next Sunday (the Baptism of the Lord). For those of us who reallllllllly drag it out, we can take til Candlemas (February 2). Don’t put Baby Jesus back in the telephone box (“I Heard Ma Bell on Christmas Day”?) just yet!

  4. Whoops, my goof. All that moving Epiphany around throws me off. Baptism of the Lord is tomorrow. But I’m still sticking with Candlemas. :)

  5. I’m with jkm. I’ma gonna keep playing my Christmas music and watching my Christmas movies ’till Candlemas. I do my best to avoid that during Advent (but I confess to you, my brothers and sisters, that I gave in a few times this year).

    Whenever I see the word “fragile” on a box, I always think of that scene from “A Christmas Story”: “Fraaaa-JEEEE-laaaay. It must be Italian!”
