It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here. My wife is winning the battle over whether we should turn on the lights yet or not. She's had the Christmas music playing, the eggnog running, and has been wrapping gifts for two weeks already. With all that going on around you it's hard not to get into the spirit.
Personally I always seem to fight a moral battle over when it is proper to celebrate Christmas. Why does it have to be a battle? Christmas is all about Christ and in my mind, we should celebrate him everyday. Oddly though, because of the commercial side of Christmas, we tend to forget what its about and then we tend to think, "Wow is it bad to celebrate Christmas before Remembrance Day is past?"
I am going to try from this point forward not to worry about when I start to celebrate Christmas and instead try to make every day a celebration where I thank God for the gifts he continually gives me, especially my wife and kids who help me celebrate no matter what time it is.
