In our secular culture, we may be much more familiar with the season of time when Tim Horton’s offers the ‘Roll up the Rim’ campaign. I never seem to win – but that’s besides the point. ‘Role up the Rim’ often runs beside the season of Lent – depending on how the calendar falls each year.

With only 43 days to go until Christmas, the signs and scents of the Season are emerging—songs on the radio, decorations in stores…and including my favourite—seasonal Christmas drinks. These things can stir excitement and anticipation for the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, but as we near the Christmas Season, we can be easily distracted and miss the point of the celebration.
