Happy Epiphany to you. This is the twelfth day of Christmas if you celebrate the season this way. Some countries put more emphasis on it than the USA, but Catholics and Anglicans here celebrate it on Ephipany Sunday which this year was Jan 4th. It's the day the Three Wise Men visited Baby Jesus.
When my girls were young (do you get tired of hearing about them?), we would start the Wise Men in another room and they would move them everyday a little closer to the Manger Scene. It helped them experience the time frame of Christmas. Also showed them that Christmas didn't end on Christmas Day.

I'm still cleaning up, organzing and decluttering from Christmas. I'll probably finish by next Christmas with any luck! I'm anxious to start quilting, so maybe that will be my incentive to speed it up. This dreary, rainy weather we have been having is really getting me down. I need some cheerful sewing to pep me up. Take care, friends. Nerm

Happy Epiphany to you, too! Thank you for sharing your cute story about moving the wisemen closer to the Christchild!

Thanks Nerm for sending me your thoughts. Do not reply on my post about this...not ready to let my family know yet...but I was 7weeks along and lost the baby:(

Again...this is just for you.

I hope I can convince someone to put away the fake tree today or at least tomorrow after someone gets home from work. :-) It's now standing there all nekked and a nice place for the dog to retreat under when we want to catch her.

Sadly it isn't big in this country to celebrate too many things is it? It was neat in France with the special food and desserts, especially Kings cake. I don't like the one that was adopted in the States via New Orleans. The French one is so much more tasty and pretty to look at.

Good luck with the decluttering of the Christmas goods :) I still need to get my act together and start some projects,but like I said in my post, little miss Caitlin is kind of but a crimp in me getting anything done!

I may take my tree down early but I'm hard pressed to stop listening to the Messiah after Christmas. It is just my favorite. Love the stained glass.
