I find it fascinating that some folks actually believe we are right in the midst of the 12 days of Christmas.
Apparently, the church's influence in the world is still there, but it's a little warped.
The 12 days of Christmas start on Christmas day. They run until January 6th: Epiphany.
For all who are concerned about keeping Christ in Christmas, please remember this, and please don't get offended if I wish you a Merry Christmas right up until January 6th.
