Celebrating The Twelve Days of Christmas

Dear Diary:

The "Twelve Days of Christmas" is more than a song that I used to like singing as a kid.  However, most of North America no longer celebrates these festivities except in song.

The twelve days of celebration begins on Christmas day and continues until the evening of January 5th.  Often gifts are exchanged on this night.  In some traditions, Epiphany usually follows the day after, on January 6th.

In the Middle Ages, it was continuous feasting until January 5th, which then signalled the end of the Christmas season.  So while sitting here, checking out my wall hanging, indicating each day of the song, I'm still eating my way through the season.  After all, it isn't January 5th for a few more days.  Right?

Good Night for now.
