I can tell you one reason Christmas is being discussed. Because there are no twelve days of new year. (grin)

Except that this is New Year's Day 2016. So why are some list members still
discussing Christmas 2015? That's old news. Let's end this thread already
and move forward.

Hello,
For some, though, the Evening on the 24th is the official Christmas.

Yes, I know it is, but that would make it thirteen days. Count them. You
have to start counting starting the 25th, since that is Christmas. So if
you count all the days, including the 25th and the 6th, it comes out to
thirteen days. Pam.

No, January 6th. (That's the feast of the Three Wise Men, or the Three
Kings, or the Epiphany, or Women's Christmas, or Little Christmas;
depending
on where, who, and what, you are! Christmas, despite commercializaation,
at
heart isn't a secular or non-Christian festival. Sunday doesn't count as a
normal day etc., etc. There are English-speaking people from all over the
World on this and other similar lists. (People in many other countries
ton't
take down their Christmas decorations until about the 7th of January.)

Of course, technology itself in no way observes such traditions. But often
the people behind it do.

That would still only be through January fifth. I just counted twice.

Hi all,

Yes, Christmas has twelve days, from December 25 to January 6. I
figure if Muslims can celebrate Ramadan for a month, and Jews can
celebrate both Chanukah and Passover for a week, then I'm entitled to
celebrate Christmas for twelve days. C'mon, folks, stand up for your
rights. Victor's correct, the liturgical calendar says Christmas lasts
twelve days, and that does not have anything to do with stores that
insist that Christmas starts on October first. Idiots!
