  • Welcome to Christmas in July. If you don’t celebrate the holiday, don’t stop reading, bear with me for just a minute. I’m going for a theory here, not a theology.
    I’d like us to look at that period of time after Thanksgiving and before New Year’s Day and how it relates to now.
    You see, in November we celebrate a day for which we are thankful for so many things. We acknowledge all of the people and little things that make daily life grand.
    Then the next month follows with a generally cheery attitude, where people get stopped on the street or in the grocery store and asked how they are doing.
    We even send letters or cards to mark the occasion and say a kind word.
    Now we flash back to three weeks ago.
