Poll: When Do You Celebrate Christmas with Your Faith Formation Group?

reader feedback

My wife taught for years at several different Catholic high schools, and she recalls how, in one school, the principal insisted that there be no Christmas decorations during Advent, while at another school, the principal wanted the school festooned with Christmas decorations so that visitors to open house could see them!

As catechists, we want to celebrate Christmas with those in our faith formation groups; however, most often, we end up not seeing them for a few weeks during the holidays. By the time they come back, Christmas can seem long gone!

That brings us to this post’s poll question: When do you celebrate Christmas with your faith formation group?
