After Christmas Sales...After Christmas spirit by Lisa Mondello

The news is flooded with after Christmas advertisements. Big sales and big deals for people who didn't get what they wanted under the Christmas tree and for those who were waiting until the Christmas rush to be over to get a favorite toy. I'll admit, I'm looking at the big White Sale advertisements. I love new sheets and towels. But while it's exciting to get that deal, it feels a little bit like a jolt to my system. Just days ago I was celebrating the birth of Christ and now I'm getting excited about towels.

One thing I've always found sad is that once Christmas is over, the spirit of Christmas seems to fade away. We become busy with our lives and forget that Christ is the reason for the season. We forget to keep Him in our hearts. Many of the things we celebrate at Christmas, family and good will toward men, are things that are important all year long. So my After Christmas wish for all of you is to keep Jesus in your heart all year.

Many blessings, Lisa Mondello

I wish I had the time to go to after Xmas sales. I dunno, maybe we can spread the spirit.

It is sad that people don't have the Christmas Spirit all year. In fact we noticed people who didn't seem to have Christmas Spirit even during the Christmas season. I think part of the reason is because everyone has forgotten that Christmas isn't about buying things. It's about God's love and how He sent His son.
