Epiphany was six days ago and Christmas day was 19 days ago, but there are still houses decorated for the Christmas season. I like the houses that continue to display their Christmas decorations for some time after others have stored them away. It's like having lighted bookends around Christmas day. There's the Advent season and its lights where we remember Jesus coming as a baby and all the fulfilled prophesies surrounding his birth. And then there are the joyous lights that continue to remind us of the joy that Emmanuel, God with us, offers all mankind.
Merry Christmas everyone.
