In the Christian tradition the Christmas season is a period beginning on Christmas Day (December 25). In some churches (e.g. the Anglican Communion) the season continues until the day before the Epiphany, which is celebrated either on January 6 or on the Sunday between January 2 and 8… From Wikipedia

So if you keep your tree and other decorations up until the first part of January you are OK. Enjoy the season, all 12 days of it.

Quotes From The Movie “Elf”

Tonight was “Elf” night as a part of the holiday movie season. Here are a few favorite quotes from this terrific movie featuring Will Ferrell, James Caan, Mary Steenburgen, Zooey Deschannel, Ed Asner and Bob Newheart

“We elves try to stick to the four main food groups: candy, candy canes, candy corns and syrup.”

“I planned out our whole day: First, we’ll make snow angels for two hours, and then we’ll go ice skating, and then we’ll eat a whole roll of Toll-House cookie dough as fast as we can, and then to finish, we’ll snuggle.”

“I passed through the seven levels of the Candy Cane forest, through the sea of swirly-twirly gum drops, and then I walked through the Lincoln Tunnel.”

“This place reminds me of Santa’s workshop…except it smells like mushrooms and everyone looks like they want to hurt me.”

“Buddy I hope you find your dad, Thanks Mr. Narwhal”

“I just like to smile; smiling’s my favorite.”
