Interesting Christmas Info -Twelve Days of Christmas

Did you know…

ChristmasThe Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning on Christmas Day (Dec 25) also known as Christmastide and Twelve tide. According to Christian traditions, the Twelfth Night of Christmas is on the evening of Jan 5 but the Twelfth Day can either precede or follow the Twelfth Night.
In the old days, many European countries believed in the superstition that both good and evil spirits become active during the Twelve Days of Christmas which later became known as the Santa’s elves.

The influence of Clement C. Moore’s The Night Before Christmas illustrated by Thomas Nast also made Christmas stories what we know today.
