Who knows about Twelfth Night

It seems nobody around these parts knows about Twelfth Night.  thumbnailca3x6dn3

They all put their decorations up at the beginning of December, some even earlier.   They take them down on New Year’s Day.

A drive from the edge of the town to my home yesterday found only a few houses with Christmas lights on, and in my road only one house in addition to mine had bravely kept their decorations until Twelfth Night.

I read this year that the Church recommends 17th December as the date for decorations to go up, although they themselves usually decorate churches from the start of the month.   I don’t put mine up until about that time, with this year being the 19th.

It is a pity that people either don’t know or just ignore the traditional Twelfth Night.
