And It's Over

Why is it that at 12:01am on December 26th Christmas is long forgotten. All the radio stations vault up the holiday music, there are no more TV specials and the very mention of Santa sends people cringing? I just don't get it? I always though the holiday's ran through the new year but I guess I was wrong.

Maybe if Christmas wasn't pounded into our heads from Thanksgiving day on, everyone would be able to enjoy the holiday season a little longer. I do. I consider it Christmas right up until New Years day and then we take down our tree. By then I'm ready to have my house back to normal but until then, it is still Christmas at the beach.

I agree, the Christmas season does not end until New Years day.

I agree! The holidays always go until New Years for me. And then the tree goes out the front door and sits in the yard until it eventually blows away. It's my foolproof tree removal method.

I completely agree! I was just wishing on the 26th, the first time I had time to sit around all month, that they were still showing holiday movies.

One of our radio stations is playing Christmas music continually through today.
