Slow Christmas: And on the 10th Day of Christmas…

January 3rd, 2009

It’s hard to believe that more than a week has passed since Christmas Day. Many people plan to take down the Christmas tree this weekend.

What’s the rush?

It was a month ago that we discussed how to “Slow Christmas” to make it more meaningful.

By rights, today is the 10th day of Christmas, or Christmastide. You remember! The day when your true love is supposed to give you ten lords a leaping!

Of course, most of us are over the presents by now – particularly this year. But who wouldn’t enjoy a few more leisurely readings of the Christmas story, another lap of the train around the tree, or simply a quiet evening enjoying the beautiful decorations?

Take the time. Enjoy Christmastide. All 12 days. And when that’s over, you can have fun celebrating Epiphany on January 6th with a Three Kings Cake.

And then it’s time to finally take down the tree!

Until, then slow down, and enjoy a Slow Christmas!
