Driving home through my neighborhood the other day, I noticed Halloween decorations. I don't get into this kind of decorating. I'm doing good if I get the Christmas decorations up by December something, and back in the attic by the time school gets out in the spring. So I was thinking that some of my neighbors decorate in October for Halloween, then in November for Thanksgiving, and finally in late November or early December for Christmas. That's three holidays in three months. And I'd rather focus on Christmas that whole time. But then I thought of another future three-way breakdown. Christmas could be the Celestial Kingdom of holidays, with the lesser kingdoms or holidays preceding, just preparing us for the later greater glory.
