Old Christmas in Appalachia
Today's marks the day of, "Old Christmas", or Epiphany in Appalachia. Known as Three King's Day in other regions, it marks the day the Three Kings paid a visit to the infant Jesus.
It also marks the twelfth day of Christmas.
Growing up we kept our Christmas tree and decorations up well past New Year's Eve and I always accepted that. Today I asked my mom why we did this and she said it was always that way when she was growing up. Thus, she kept the tradition.
Do you keep this type of tradition? I confess I did not this year. The decor was down well before Epiphany.
Linking up this barn with The Barn Collective today. Can I say I am wishing for some snow?! This photo is from a couple of years ago. It seems to only be rain these days.
