12 Days of Christmas

partridge in pearChristmas isn’t over yet! Even though most Western Christians focus on THE one day of Christmas on December 25, Christmas is actually a season that begins on December 25, and runs for 12 days.  Christmastide ends on January 6, when Western Christians celebrate Epiphany, which marks the visit of the magi to the Holy Child.  The carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is probably a vestige of this twelve-day season, and some see this song as full of hidden references that teach the Christian faith.  Read more about the season of Christmas and the hidden references.
