Do you know how many people I have heard in the past week say that they are so far behind in their Christmas decorating? How far behind is far behind, I wonder? Is there a law that says you have to put up Christmas decorations by a certain date? I don't think so. Is there some rule that says you have to do your Christmas cards before St. Nicholas Day? Not to my knowledge. Did someone back in history mandate that Christmas baking needed to be done by December 15th or else it didn't count? People need to relax and enjoy the beauty and wonder of the season. Advent for Christians is a time of reflection and waiting. So, how about we do a bit more of that and quit agonizing over made up missed deadlines!
