it’s the first of the twelve!

“On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…”

Some people tend to think of Christmas as being just December 25th, but the Christmas season lasts longer than that!

The Shepherds & the Wise Men have yet to arrive!

According to the Church’s Universal Norms on the Liturgical Year and the Calendar, the official rule is this: the Christmas Season begins at the Vigil Mass on Christmas Eve and ends on the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord.

So don’t yet take down the tree!

Christ was born for all to See!

Let us rejoice and proclaim His dear birth!

And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  John 1:14

Once more the world remembers
Our blessed Savior’s  birth.

Once more we think of Bethlehem and pray for peace on earth.

May this blessed Christmas Season hold many joys for you and special inspirations to last the New Year through!IMG_6904

  1. Thank you thank you! I send you hugs and blessings for writing your blog. Our Christmas Tree looks so lovely and today I have added two more stars one gold and one silver (special sale at the shop ……chocolates inside them) They look stunning. I have a granddaughter visiting tomorrow.(28th December here.) What a wonderful chance for Christmas with all its joy and love to flow on her. Yes indeed the coming of the wise men is still to be celebrated and acknowledged and the twelve days can indeed continue to bring inspiration, love and blessings.
