Friday Finds - The Twelfth Day

My grandmother used to say that she would keep her holiday decorations up through Russian New Year.  One year, they were up all year long.  My mother takes down all her decorations on New Year's day, the American one.  Since having my own home to decorate, I haven't felt a rush to break down the decorations.  It's my favorite time of the year and putting everything away makes next year seem very far away.  So when I learned of the twelfth day of Christmas, or the Epiphany, I felt that I had found a meaningful and significant time until which to keep out the decorations.

Clockwise from Top L:
Man vs. George - Happy Hump Day Card
Schulman Art - Camel Water Color Print
Quite Lovable - Red Camel Necklace
Loji Craft - Camel Cantik in Orange

  1. Hooray for the 6th of January! Today is a big day of celebration in our neighborhood for all of our Russian neighbors! :) Some years they don't even put out their lights until Christmas Eve. I just love celebrating the full Christmas season for what it truly is... a time to remember so much love.
