In the old classic ‘Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer’; yep, I’m talking the 1964 clay-mation story about the misfit toys and skinny Santa. Santa declares that they will have to call off Christmas. “And the children have been so good this year,” he says. Now, think back, way back, to when you were young. Dates didn’t matter; times were obsolete. All that was important was what was going on RIGHT NOW.
Christmas is like that. Especially for children. Recently a friend posted on facebook, “FYI (for your information): The Christmas season didn’t end on Christmas day.” I was taken back at how simple yet powerful this statement is.
