Waiting for the show

Waiting for the show

I know more than a few people who put their Christmas tree up the day after Thanksgiving.  Or earlier.  We’re not there.

We aren’t celebrating Christmas yet. We are in the season of Advent, which is the preparation for the birth of Jesus.  Instead, most people begin their celebration while the turkey is still sitting on the table after dinner. Then the tree comes down, the decorations go back in the box, and the tinsel is vacuumed off the carpet before the new year begins.

It seems a bit backwards, doesn’t it?  Maybe entirely.  We celebrate the event while we are waiting for it, then forget about it while it’s happening.  The 12 days of Christmas are the 12 days after December 25th.

So our tree will sit in the backyard for a while, waiting for it’s appearance on the main stage.
