Last year we began the tradition of celebrating the twelve days of Christmas leading up to January 6th, Three Kings Day (or Epiphany or Twelfth Night). I love the idea of extending Christmas for as long as we can with continuous feasting and merrymaking and celebrating the birth of Christ. The problem is that I haven't really thought out exactly how we are going to do this. I imagine it will consist of making lots of tasty things to eat and inviting friends and neighbors over (last-minute, of course) to join us. Wassail, warden pear pie, king's cake, Christ's bread, Japanese noodles, omochi, and other treats are being considered... I'll return and report!
