Have a Blessed Twelfth Day

Christmas carolers will remember that the season has 12 days. 

For the early Western Christian Church, the twelve days of Christmas end today, with the Feast of Epiphany, celebrated on January 6. It is also known as Three Kings Day.

According to the legend based on the Bible story, the three kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, who are often called the Three Wise Men saw, on the night when Christ was born, a bright star.

And after seeing the star, the Three Wise Men made a journey of twelve days following the star to Bethlehem, to present the baby Jesus with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

Modern feminist humor sometimes gently jokes that Three Wise Women would have asked directions, arrived on time, and brought practical gifts.  :-)
