I have a confession. I don't want Christmas to be over. I love the sparkle, the lights, the magic, the hope, the fires, the peaceful nights by the tree. That's one reason I love our Epiphany tradition. It stretches it out a little. The twelve days of Christmas actually begins at Christmas. And ends (in the Christian calendar) on Epiphany. "Twelfth-Day." "The Day of the Kings." It celebrates Jesus revealing himself as the light of the world, and the coming of the Magi from afar to worship Him.
