It’s still Christmas!

It’s still Christmas!

Christmas isn’t over! We’re only half-way through the Christmas Octave; by another measure, we’re only part-way through the twelve days of Christmas.

Snopes may have busted the old myth that the popular carol was a secret catechism among recusant Catholics, but The Twelve Days of Christmas still serves the worthy purpose of reminding us to keep our Christmas trees up, and keep wishing others a Merry Christmas, right up until the Feast of the Epiphany.

And thanks to this video, the carol is also good for a laugh. Here’s to Christmas cheer!
