Christmas Trivia - the 12 days of Christmas

The twelve days of Christmas refers to the period from Christmas Eve until the feast of the Epiphany on January 6th. 

Traditionally from the first Sunday in Advent (yesterday for those whose spirituality doesn't include church or mass) you decorate your home with candles, decorations and prepare food so that on Christmas Eve the culmination is a feast and the putting up of the Christmas Tree the crowning glory of the four weeks preparation. 

tree then stays up until the feast of the Epiphany January 6th - 12 days.
