Having played my last set of Christmas music on Wednesday night, because the restaurant was closed on Christmas Eve and Day, I thought I was done with the holiday songs for at least another year.
So it surprised me that when I came into work on Saturday, there were still many guests asking for Christmas music.
I had always thought the twelve days of Christmas ended on Christmas Day itself, but apparently, many people justified their requests by telling me that the twelve days actually begin on that day, and last long into January.
On hindsight, I start to agree.
The spirit and the reason for the season shouldn’t end after just twelve days.
It should make all our days merry and bright, all the time.
