Countdown to Christmas


Countdown to Christmas, eh? Those slow-pokes at the Hallmark Channel finally got around to it mid-October.

Hallmark movie moral: Everything works out. Grandma is content.

Hallmark movie moral, holiday version: Everything will work out by Christmas. Grandma is content.

Every reader of the church calendar knows
  • Dec 25 Nativity of our Lord
  • Mar 25 Annunciation
  • Jun 24 Nativity of John the Baptist 

But alert readers have done the math and know it all begins fifteen months before Christmas:

  • Sep 25  Shut-up Sunday

Angel: Your wife is pregnant.

Zech: Shut up!

Gabe: No, you shut up!


It's in the book, look it up.
