Rolla, MO – Friends of Judy Welch think this will be another extended Christmas at the Welch home.  “It’s already January 4th, and she hasn’t taken the tree down,” said Marsha Reeves.  “That’s really not a big deal, but if you ask her about it, she will start talking about the 12 Days of Christmas even though she is a Baptist and doesn’t even know what Epiphany celebrates.”

Jennifer Rolf, a member of Judy’s Sunday School class, explained, “I suspect the tree will be up till Easter again this year.  Last year, the ladies from the Young Women’s Group organized an intervention with Judy about it (some were concerned about decorum, but all were concerned about a fire hazard), but she claimed that the Virgin Birth can be celebrated year around, and the Incarnation is without season.”

When asked about her plans for this year, Judy said, “Last year, I was just busy.  This year, I want them to get their panties in a wad.”
