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!

  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.
