The Christmas Season

December 25th marks the beginning, not the end, of the Christmas season.

The Christmas season begins with the celebration of the Octave of Christmas, we celebrate for eight days.  The octave begins on Christmas Day and ends on January 1, the Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God. The Christmas season officially ends with the Baptism of the Lord.

The Christmas season is full of exciting feasts and celebrations all pointing to Jesus as the Christ. 

  • December 26 – St. Stephen (the first martyr)

  • December 27 – The Holy Family (the Sunday after Christmas)

  • December 28 – Holy Innocents (children murdered by Herod’s soldiers in the effort to destroy the Christ Child)

  • January 1 – Holy Mary, Mother of God

  • January 3 – The Epiphany of the Lord (visit of the Magi)

  • January 10 – The Baptism of the Lord
