The twelve day of Christmas is also know as 3 Kings Day or The Epiphany. On this day, the Three wise men or Magi brought Jesus presents. It is celebrated in many parts of the world with feasts and gift giving. It is also the unofficial day to take down your Christmas decor. In fact, some people are superstitious and think it’s bad luck to take down Christmas decorations before the 12th day. I celebrate this with a fabulous meal after taking down and packing away my Christmas decor. I also focus on some gift giving. The Christmas season is filled with hustle and bustle and we all try to fit in as much as possible before Christmas Day. I’m always so touched when my neighbors stop by with presents and christmas cheer. Even though one of my joys in life is baking treats for my neighbors for Christmas, it is always a struggle to find the time between events. The 12th Day of Christmas is a perfect opportunity to reach out to friends and neighbors after the Christmas rush with a little gift of gratitude to show them how much they mean to you. So this year, I baked and packaged up Banana Bread, Breakfast Puffs and ground up some holiday coffee for all the people who had so thoughtfully brought gifts over to me during the Christmas season. Because it was after Christmas, when I arrived with my Epiphany presents, we actually had time to sit down and visit. It was relaxed, casual and a great way to give gratitude to those who take the time to make your life special.
