12 twelve days of Christmas Epiphany three wise men kings Jesus celebration
By Xavier Romero-Frias via Wikimedia Commons

Traditionally, Christmas celebrations lasted for twelve days, ending with a big feast on Epiphany. A lot of people nowadays no longer seem to observe the full Christmas period, ending their celebrations on Boxing Day instead.
Do you celebrate the twelve days of Christmas? If so, what special rituals do you have for this time?

I really love that element, but I remember back in England people talking about it over 50 years ago.
It's not something done these days.
We don't celebrate it ....
No, but I do complain bitterly about the absence of a partridge in a pear tree!

No, too much merriment spoils the actual day.
NO, I do not really celebrate Christmas, so I certainly do not celebrate 12 days, and have not heard of anyone doing this either -even those religious people I know.

i don't know what the 12 days of Christma are - is it 1-12 of December or is is 12 to 24 culminating i a bi celebration on 25 December -Can anyone help ?
The four weeks before Christmas are Advent - getting ready for the birth of Christ - then Christmas Day and the next twelve days are Christmas. Epiphany (6 January) is celebrated as the arrival of the three wise men and the end of Christmas.
Thank you for the answer - will now pass it on throughout the family. Thanks
