Today is June 25 which means it is 6 months until Christmas! This day is known as Leon Day (Leon being the opposite spelling of Noel). On Leon Day we can have a mini celebration, knowing that Christmas in July is right around the corner and it’s time to get out the red and green and start crafting. Or play Christmas music. Or start decorating. Or at least start planning your decorating and celebrating. Leon Day is here!
