I am convinced now more than ever that the real war is not on Christmas, but on Advent. Simply put, Catholics no longer celebrate the Season of Advent. We are all so worried these days about the lack of those who acknowledge Christmas that we are forgetting the season we are in -- The Season of Advent.
Case in point, the number of people who believe today is the first day of the 12 Days of Christmas. Yes, someone asked me why I did not mention the 12 Days today... All one can respond with is, "Come Lord Jesus!"
