OK - I will join the plan to celebrate Christmas all week. Will some of you share ideas?

One idea, off the top of my head, is to have a Christmas leftovers dinner -- (one night during Christmas week) -- where people bring all kinds of food to a buffet at your house. And you use paper plates. And maybe play instrumental Christmas music.

We're in for Jan. 1 and beyond. We always celebrate the full 12 days of Christmas and keep some greens and decorations up until Candlemas (Feb. 2) which in the old tradition is the end of the Season. It's a magical time of year. Invite out of town family to visit, have an after Christmas holiday party or just sit and enjoy your decorations, Christmas music and movies. Try it--we think you will like it.

wenceslaus - you are right, we should be celebrating beyond the 1st!

i am so pleased you all agree, i will hold you to this, i am gonna be checking that we are all still feeling jolly and festive from the 26th december. christmas is a season, not a day and it isn't over come midnight on the 25th.

sparklenana - i am just going to keep watching christmas specials on tv and watching my festive movies and listening to my music. your idea about leftover dinner buffet sounds great!

as most of us do, I try to keep the spirit of Christmas with me all year, it sure helps me to stay tolerant of all kinds of things. And I keep all my holiday trappings up til the epiphany, that is one of the traditions I keep hold on. Don't be upset that the day is over, just think of it as a runner up or the start of 2009's Christmas countdown and start planning for it.

Keep it alive in your hearts and mind.
