Enjoy your time off with your family and friends this holiday season, but come back ready to share the joy of Christmas after the break is over! In the Catholic liturgical calendar, Christmas begins on Christmas Eve night and extends to the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord. The “twelve days of Christmas” last from Christmas to the feast of the Epiphany, but the season actually extends to the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord.
What a great opportunity to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas: Emmanuel, God-is-with-us!
So get excited about sharing the Christmas joy with your students when you return (but don’t feel like you have to play those Christmas songs anymore!)
