My family at our Christmas gathering 2011
We were missing DS#2 and his family as well as DS#4 and his family.
ON THE 12TH DAY OF CHRISTMAS...
Shall I play for you.
On my drum. Mary nodded.
The ox and lamb. Kept time.
Day 12: Twelve drummers drumming
That would be quite the sight. I don’t know any drummer and that is my plight. But there are 12 months in every year and I have my calendar to make the kids seem near. Each day that I write what I am to do, It's a reminder to me of how much I miss each and every one of them.
Now Christmas is past,
Twelfth Night is the last
To the Old Year adieu,
Great joy to the new
This twelfth night of the twelve days of Christmas is the official end of the winter holiday season and one of the traditional days for taking down the Christmas decorations.
Twelfth Night is followed by Epiphany which is celebrated tomorrow, January 6th. It's the day when the wise men finally end their journey.
I hope you'll join me Friday, when I'll be sharing my thoughts on what Epiphany is all about.
It's Thankful Thursday and today I'm thankful that I've been able to share these 12 days with you.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! And a very Happy New Year!
