The days after Christmas can be a letdown for many. For many the celebrations are over, family has gone home, it’s back to work, back to the routine, the credit cards bills begin to come in, and the kids will soon go back to school. However our readings for today are anything but a letdown. They are upbeat and joyful as we continue to celebrate Christmas. They are upbeat and joyful because they are a reminder that Christmas is not seasonal activity and then it’s over. Rather because of Christ’s arrival we should celebrate Christmas every day.
