You didn’t miss anything, and what’s odd about it is… I posted it.

As a kid many, many years ago before artificial trees existed, we would keep our tree up until January 6 when the 3 Kings arrived and visited baby Jesus.  It was only about 4 or 5 years ago when I stopped buying real trees.  Now it is artificial all the way and the tree goes up the week of Thanksgiving. Cat HappyHeart

And while we are being reminded about Christmas December is an important month for many beliefs.  For example:

 

Hanukkah 2018 begins in the evening of Sunday, December 2 and ends in the evening of Monday, December 10

 

Buddhists celebrate Bodhi Day on Saturday, December 8th

 

Hindus celebrate Dhanu Sankranti on Sunday,  Dec 16th and celebrate Geeta Jayanti on Tuesday, Dec 18th 

 


 

            Important to think about, @Marp.   I would add this food for thought:

 

"We hear the beating of wings over Bethlehem and a light that is not of the sun or of the stars shines in the midnight sky.   

Let the beauty of the story take away all narrowness, all thought of formal creeds.   

Let it be remembered as a story that has happened again and again, to people of many different races, that has been expressed through many religions, that has been called by many different names.   

Time and space and language lay no limitations upon human brotherhood." ~1937 New York Times, Letters

Maybe it is a reminder to those who rip their trees down on the 26th of December.

Why is that odd? 

 

Can someone explain the point of this thread because obviously I'm not the only one going "WTH is this about?"

 

Is it a full moon tonight?
