Twelfth Night

Today is the 12th day after Christmas, traditionally celebrated in western Christianity as Epiphany.

I always take the decorations down on the 6th January but the place looks very bare!  Laughing

The Monday after Twelfth Day is Plough Monday when agriculture rsumes after Christmas.

Didn't know that!  The farmers have as long a holiday as children and teachers!    Laughing
