Dear Building Management,

Dear Uber-Neighbor, Dear Guy with the three thousand inflatables in his yard since Halloween, Dear QT clerk, and all my wonderful fellow men,

It's still Christmas! It's not even New Year's Day, let alone Epiphany, or February 2nd!  Christ is born in Bethlehem of Juda!  Rejoice!

Merry Christmas!

The idea behind advent seems to be to get you so stuffed by 12/25 that 12/25 actually becomes a day like Shrove Tuesday: the last blast before a period of shriving and dieting ... to eat one last time for those who didnt get enough at holiday parties.

"on the 5th day of Christmas, my truelove gave to me, FIVE golden rings!
The 5 golden rings are the 5 books of the Old Testament, known as the Torah: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy, which gives the history of humanity's sin and God's response of grace in the creation of a People to reflect His Light to the world."

This, (the whole explanation of the 12 days of Christmas) THIS was in our church bulletin at St. Catherine of Siena in Wake Forest NC. Thanks Msgr. Brockman!
