In my childhood, the christmas tree was put up on Christmas Eve. We began celebrating on Christmas day and continued until Epiphany. Yesterday I was surprised to learn that a friend had already taken down her tree and removed all vestiges of Christmas. The initial surprise was tempered by the recognition that she is a secularist, who was raised in a home where no faith was practiced.
