Making Christmas Last

An excellent way to start doing that is to read this post of the same name on Recta Ratio . And then spend some time with the other posts Mr. Fitzpatrick has given us over the Christmas season. I mentioned earlier his selections from Washington Irving. But do browse the rest of his site. This is a really wonderful blog; I'm really sorry to be so late finding it. Yesterday alone there were several posts on St. Stephen, the Wren Boys of Ireland and wassailing, and Boxing Day customs. And today there is a precis of the life of the holy Apostle St. John whose feast it is. This is much better than the Christmas issue of any magazine I know of.
