Twelve Drummers Drumming
Happy 12th Day of Christmas! According to my mom, all Christmas decorations can go down after January 6th, Epiphany, although our decorations have always lingered longer than that. I will start taking down some decorations this weekend. I left up the outside decorations of the restaurant until this week too. The entire town is still decked out, so I thought I better keep with the spirit.
A few weeks ago I saw an article about "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and how some believe that the song has hidden meanings to teach catechism to children in 16th Century England. I found a site that discusses Epiphany and the song here.
Whatever your beliefs, wherever you are...Enjoy the day!
