Almost a national festival

The last few days have been very long with my move. Today continued with laundry, clothes organizing and more clothes purging. Yes, after the move. Less space for some things helps motivate action.

While doing that I listened to the rest of A Short History of the Book of Common Prayer. At one point a concern was mentioned that “even Christmas Day … has come to be accounted almost a national festival,” meaning its celebration and recognition was no longer a matter limited to church liturgy.

As that paragraph included earlier, “all this is changing.” Indeed.

The reason for Christmas never changes.
