Christmas and holiday season, a season to remember:

The Christmas season, the holiday season, or simply the holidays is an annual festive period that surrounds the Christmas holiday and other holidays. It is sometimes synonymous with the winter season in the Northern Hemisphere, and is usually said to occur between late November and early January. It has been found to have a proportionate effect on health, compared to the rest of the year.[citation needed] Its reference and naming by schools and governments has been the subject of controversy in the United States. It incorporates a period of shopping which comprises a peak season for the retail sector (the "Christmas shopping season"), and a period of sales at the end of the season (the "January sales").

The exact definition, name, and celebratory method of the period varies from culture to culture. The Vatican and Roman Catholic adherents celebrate Christmas beginning with Advent between November 27 and December 3 and ending after the Epiphany on January 6. Eastern Orthodox churches observe the Nativity Fast from September 1 through December 24 and the holiday season lasts through January 7th. In medieval pagan cultures, the season began after All Hallow’s Eve and lasted through the Twelfth Night. According to Yanovski et al., in the United States the season "is generally considered to begin with Thanksgiving and end after New Year’s Day". According to Axelrad, the season in the United States encompasses at least Christmas and New Year’s Day, and also includes Saint Nicholas Day. The U.S. Fire Administration defines the "Winter Holiday Season" as the period from December 1 to January 7. According to Chen et al., in China the Christmas and holiday season "is generally considered to begin with the winter solstice and end after the Lantern Festival". Some stores and shopping malls advertise their Christmas merchandise beginning after Halloween or even in late October, alongside Halloween items. In the United Kingdom, Christmas food generally appears on supermarket shelves as early as September.

The precise definition of feasts and festival days that are encompassed by the Christmas and holiday season has become controversial over recent decades. Traditionally, the only holidays included in the "season" were Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day (in some countries), New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and Epiphany. In recent times, this definition has begun to expand to include Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Thanksgiving and Black Friday.[10] Due to the phenomenon of Christmas creep and the informal inclusion of American Thanksgiving, the Christmas and holiday season has begun to extend earlier into the year and may even include Halloween.

Active Church Members Feeling Overwhelmed During Christmas Season Have Hope in New Book – “Falling in Love with the Church” Offered as Free Gift To Burned Out Christians

Kansas City, KS (PRWEB) December 9, 2006

Active church members feeling unappreciated because there are so few hands for the overwhelming work brought on by the Christmas season now have available to them a strong word of encouragement in a new book, “Falling in Love with the Church.” It is a must read before any further thoughts of bitterness or of being unloved start to take root. This book is offered FREE to anyone who is considering the possibility of leaving the church. Thanks to the “Love the Church Campaign” launched by National Church Specialties (NCS), an international ministry that helps build harmony in the church. “Falling in Love with the Church,” written by NCS founder Larry McKain, is a 280 page “how-to” guide to lead church members and leaders in building harmony, love and health back into the church.

“While the Christmas season is one of joy for many people, there are those who are so busy in the churches trying to make the holidays enjoyable for everyone else that they, themselves, are losing the joy of serving and some are even thinking about leaving their church because they feel unappreciated,” says McKain. “We have launched the “Love the Church Campaign” aimed at giving these sincere people encouragement, love and hope about going forward in their church before a seed of bitterness has an opportunity to grow.”

NCS is committed to helping believers this holiday season recapture the love and passion for the church that Christ felt. A FREE COPY of “Falling in Love with the Church” can be obtained by contacting NCS at 317.881.3693 or by visiting:

In addition, NCS has launched a weekly electronic devotional newsletter called “LOVE THE CHURCH” to encourage all believers in the joyful task of loving the church and loving one another. This e-devotional offers insights from scripture to help Christians understand why they are called to love the church as Christ loved her – even when the church is behaving badly! It offers helpful advice and sound counsel on building a relationship with the church that will last a lifetime – through good as well as bad times.

New Church Specialties is a coaching and consulting ministry that works to build agenda harmony, and to strengthen and multiply the church. Founded on July 1, 1999, NCS has now trained over 60,000 church leaders in 22 different denominations, both here in the U.S. & Canada and around the world.
