The Fifth Day of Christmas
The feast of the Holy Family is celebrated on the Sunday between Christmas Day and New Year's Day and recalls that the Savior of the world was born into a family with a mother and father to watch over him, protect him and teach him. The feast reviews qualities such as courage, resourcefulness and patience. We could celebrate this Holy Day with a family dinner, one without the expectations and pressures of the Christmas dinner.
