Do they know it’s still Christmastime?

Tonight one of my sons asked if we could take down the Christmas tree. I said obviously not since it’s Christmas. Not everyone believed me, in part because of confusion over which date marks the end of the Christmas season. A couple of the kids thought that it was the epiphany. So we looked it up online and found that it is Christmas until Monday.

It made me think of that song by Band Aid. Even though the song is really weird, I thought the question was pretty fitting. But it didn’t apply to people in a far-off land. It applies to our own society. In 21st century America, we tend to celebrate Christmas starting the day after Thanksgiving (or even after Halloween), have a big celebration on Christmas Day, and then not celebrate Christmas for the rest of the season.  It’s difficult to live out Advent when everyone is living Christmas, and then celebrate Christmas when everyone else has stopped.  We should celebrate Christmas all season long. So, keep the Christmas tunes going. Keep the tree and lights up. Watch Christmas movies with a big cup of hot chocolate.

As our family discussion turned to the Band-aid Song. We tend to do things like that.  We didn’t know who everybody was in the video so I took some screenshots for research. Here they are for your consideration.
David Lee Roth?

Sam Gamgee from the Lord of the Rings?

No idea

Eddie Haskil?

George McFly?

We saw somewhere online that said that Kris Kross was in the video but I didn’t see them. Maybe they were too short?

The blue tent sky

Tom Woods interviews Brian Aitken. 

After hearing this interview about such a terrible abuse of civil rights, I bought the e-book right away. Guy commits no crime but hasn’t been able to see his son for 8 years. Unreal.

Hopefully these days will soon be behind us as a new political climate takes charge. We shall see and keep up the good fight. Listen to the interview, you owe it to yourself.  I’ll update this post with my thoughts as I read along.
