Straight No Chaser (It's a tradition now!)

THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

Christmas is not a celebration that lasts a single day.  Christmas is a twelve-day season that begins on December 25 and ends on January 5, the eve of the Epiphany of Our Lord. Epiphany commemorates the visit of the wise men to Jesus in the stable and marks the end of the Christmas season. 











This feast of the manifestation, or Epiphany, is traditionally celebrated on the 12th day after Christmas, January 6th. In the diocese of the United States this has been moved to the SUNDAY occurring between January 2 and January 8.
