On the TWELFTH DAY of Christmas


TwelfthNightReverlersInvite1912Blessings to you and all those that come to your house during Christmas.  I pray you %D0%92%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%85%D0%B2%D1%8Bhave had a safe and prosperous festive season, & are filled with memories that will endure a lifetime.  On the 12th day of Christmas – my true love gave to me…… 12 drummers drumming……….



Continuing with our story of the 12 Days of Christmas…… we have arrived at the last feast day….. the 12th day …… The 12th night, often included feasting & the removal of all the decorations & French & English celebrations of Twelfth Night often included a King's Cake, remembering the visit of the Three Magi (Three Wise Men).  For myself – we used to always have up on 1st December & down on New Year's Eve – so we greeted the new year fresh – however now that we don't have any children at home, we usually go away on 27th, so I like to at least get the tree down before we go away, otherwise, it is pretty messy by the time we get back mid January – all dried out & dropping nettles everywhere.


Today's free images are by a Russian Artist Andrei Ryabushki – He has a fascinating style that really appeals to me.  Have fun with it!  The 'butterfly' is an invitation from a Twelfth Night party in 1912…. I love the colours of it!

WELL – this is the last day of images – DON'T FORGET – Please leave a comment and a link on the day with the image of any of them you use and on January 14th I will draw a winner – to recieve one of my original pieces of artwork.

  1. Thanks for sharing your Twelve Days of Christmas. Most blogs have the twelve days starting 12 days before Christmas. I love all the pictures and reading your thoughts. Thank you.
