The 12 Days of Christmas
plus Epiphany

The Twelve Days of Christmas is the festive Christian season, beginning on Christmas Day (25 December), that celebrates the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. This period is also known as Christmastide. The Twelfth Day of Christmas (5 January) is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on 6 January. Epiphany means manifestation. What the Church celebrates today is the manifestation of our Lord to the whole world; after being made known to the shepherds of Bethlehem He is revealed to the Magi who have come from the East to adore Him. Christian tradition has ever seen in the Magi the first fruits of the Gentiles; they lead in their wake all the peoples of the earth, and thus the Epiphany is an affirmation of universal salvation. Many different saint feast days fall within the twelve days of Christmas, but they are not part of the Twelve Days themselves. The Twelve Days is a distinct period focused on commemorating the Nativity of Christ, and the visit of the Wise Men, the Magi, and their bringing of gifts to the child Jesus. Catholics celebrate Epiphany as a single day, however, the Protestant faith marks Epiphany as a whole season until Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent leading to Easter. Depending on the timing of Easter, this longer period of Epiphany includes from four to nine Sundays. In 2019, Ash Wednesday is on Mar. 6th, which marks the begining of Lent. Easter will be on April 21st.
