It's the Twelfth Day of Christmas-the Epiphany of our Lord. I love these photos posted by Rita on Tigerish Waters.

In the West the tradition is there were three wise men bringing the gold, francincense and myrhh. In the East there has been a tradition of 12 wise men- or maybe it was 12 men but only three of them were wise enough to bring a gift Teethy .

It's a bit sad as all the decorations come down-but hey our Ukrainian Catholic brothers and sisters are about to have their Christmas tomorrow so it aint over yet! (Whistling 'always look on the bright side of life, te-dum...)

God bless you one and all.

Happy Feast Day of the Epiphany! We will be taking down our decorations tomorrow but my sister is keeping hers up until after the Baptism of Our Lord.

Just took down our tree yesterday. I miss it, but am also glad to get the house back to normal. Am still cleaning up needles all over the place!
