Christmas Started??



On Nov. 30, the huge Christmas Tree in Rockerfeller Center in New York City was lit up.  The media and those who particpated cried out "Now the Christmas season has officially gone underway..."  Wrong!

The Christmas season begins at sunset on Christmas Eve and ends at the Baptism of the Lord.  

We are currently in the season of Advent, not Christmas season.  When will secular society return Christmas back to the Catholic Church?  It is our holiday!
