I know the correct answer to every question, but then I am 73.
From a liturgical point of view, it is not yet the Christmas season. It is the Advent season, which this year began Nov. 30 and lasts through Dec. 24. The Christmas season begins on Christmas Day and lasts for 12 days, followed by Epiphany on Jan. 6.
Very true! But from a shopping and decorating point of view, ’tis the season! 🙂
