I’m usually an early Christmas decorator. In my mind, Thanksgiving happens in early October (thanks to my Canadian roots). As a consequence, I am usually ready to decorate for Christmas on November 1st. This year, though, I have that itch even earlier. 2020 has been a hard year and I think we could all do with more joy and light in our daily environment. Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE the fall and enjoy the Thanksgiving, harvest, and Halloween celebrations. This year, however, I’m ready to celebrate a holiday about light in the darkness. Those celebrations only happen in December. Whether Christmas, Hannukah, or Kwanza, there is a light in the dark. These celebrations encourage togetherness, peace, and family. I need that right now. Especially in a year when I can’t physically be with my extended family due to travel restrictions.
I’m also comforted by reminding myself that Jesus came to a broken world. He didn’t wait for us to have it all together. He came to save us when we were at our worst. The world feels especially broken in 2020. I’m ready to remember the light, hope, and joy that came 2000+ years ago. I need my environment to remind me of the faithfulness of God in the past, and the hope we have in the future.
So, even though I’m several months early I’m going to sing “Joy to the World” and ask, “Is it Christmas yet?”
