Merry Christmas!

Yes, you read that correctly. Merry Christmas.

At least it’s Christmas according to Peach.

Last night, as I was tucking him into bed, he told me that it was Christmas for all the people who celebrate. I reminded him that Christmas had been celebrated a few weeks ago.

But it snowed today. Remember? When it snows, it’s Christmas.

It’s hard to argue with his logic. In order to make Christmas more appealing to a wider audience, the religiosity of “Christ’s Mass” has been downplayed while the winter elements now receive the most attention. Christmas has been rebranded as a “seasonal” holiday. For a California native, like Peach, it makes a certain sense that he associates Christmas with snow.

Wonder how long til he realizes that Christmas isn’t a meteorologic event?
