Christmas 2018 is over! The excitement of Christmas took weeks to build to a crescendo… and then it was over! Life has gotten back to normal. And many people suffer from the after-Christmas blahs, a kind of depression after all the hoop-la of Christmas, what has been called the “Post-Christmas Blues.”
Think of what it was like for Mary and Joseph. We spend weeks before Christmas reading about the events leading up to and including the birth of Jesus. We seldom hear a sermon about what happened to them after Christmas.
