As I am asked every year, Christmas is a season, not a simple 24 hour period. It does not begin right after Thanksgiving [that's the secular "retail" Christmas], but at sundown on Christmas Eve and continues until sundown on January 5th. In other words, twelve days, just like the venerable song says.
