“Christmas is Over”

After one Christmas Eve party and two Christmas day celebrations, my son Bradon wispered in my ear, “Christmas is over.” He had this somewhat sad tone to his voice. I said, “Bradon, Christmas isn’t over. We have a full week at home together before school starts again. And we have at least two more parties to go to.”

He asked, “Will there be presents?”

As I told him that there most likely wouldn’t be more presents to open, this moment became a great teaching moment for me.

So what defines Christmas for you? And when do you say that it’s over?
