WHEWWWW...Too many gatherings, although I enjoyed each one....and ate far too much at each one, too!

By the way, I saw a very interesting article at MSNBC about how to take spectacular holiday photographs. Check it out HERE.

I was also wondering how long you leave your holiday decorations up and/or out, including the Christmas tree. :bigsmurf: :?: :?

Your easiest question yet, January 6th. This is because the twelve days of Christmas BEGIN at sunset Christmas eve.

I WISH we observed "Old Christmas," the Twelve Days, which begin as you said, APL and ends on Twelfth Night, January 6. Would makes much more sense to celebrate for 12 days considering all the preparation we make, than to just celebrate on the one day. BUT commercial saturation begins before Halloween and we're told we have to do this or that in order to have that "perfect" holiday. People will be going back to work tomorrow...and the holiday will be over until the big blow-out of New Year's Eve....and then EVERYBODY will be back at work for sure by Jan 4....holiday definitely over.
