Not lazy, just keeping with tradition!

Not sure when the Christmas decorations will come down but I found this interesting – and it give me more time to get my Christmas, I mean Epiphany cards in the mail!!

“The twelve days of Christmas begin on Christmas Day, December 25th and end on the Twelfth Night, January 5th . On January 6th, traditionally the last day of the Christmas season, is when we celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany or Three Kings Day. (Technically the last day of the season is February 2 and you thought people were just being lazy about taking down their Christmas lights!)”

I didn’t realize that the last day of the Christmas season was Candlemas, did you?  Ya, you probably did.
