The Twelve Days of Christmas

Some people still have their Christmas lights up...even their indoor trees. Don't laugh. Maybe some neighbors are lazy or are still basking in the warm glow of Christmas cheer, but it is still the holiday. It is the 12 Days of Christmas and will be until January 6 when Epiphany arrives and the Twelfth Night. Some Christians celebrate Epiphany until January 19th! Actually there is a tradition that takes it to the first day of Lent. Please remember these traditions before you chastise a neighbor for being lazy about their decorations. I take down all my outward decorations but leave my tree and nativity up until 12th Night. More on this later.
