Okay, now it’s done
Yesterday was Epiphany and now it’s time to pack away the tinsel and get on with the business of getting ready for next Christmas.
Rob! What heresy are you speaking? We’ve just gotten done with all of that. We’re sick of Santa. We’re fed up with Christmas cookies and egg nog. It’s time to move on.
Yes, fair enough, but for those who pursue the business of Christmas it’s time to gear up for the next one. The elves have had a breather. Santa kicked his feet up and watched the television a bit but now the reindeer are chomping at the bit to get back in running order. Behind all the glamour there are people planning which decorations will be in the stores. What the next big theme is. Who’s going to be in the parades. How many people will be traversing downtown and how much shopping they’re likely to do. How many Christmas trees to plant and when to plant them so they’re nice and tall for Christmastime.
It’s time to delve into the off-season, nitty gritty business of Christmas. Stay tuned!
