For Christmas people, December 25 is the center and pinnacle of the year. They look forward to it and, instead of seeing December 26 as the day after Christmas, they see it as the 363rd day before it. All year is about anticipation and the hope that comes during the holiday season. Even if you aren’t one of those kinds of people, by now you’re anticipating the joy of what’s just one week away. Isn’t it interesting how that acts as a metaphor for life in general? We’re always waiting, aren’t we? Waiting for things to be better. Waiting to catch a break. What we’ve missed in Christmas though, is that the wait is finally over.
