  1. So this coincides with the day the 3 Kings Bring gifts to Baby Jesus. Jan 6th or the 12th day of Christmas. I like Celebrating the return of the Sun better. Thanks for info 🙂


    • The gift of light returning is an important one!


    • Thanks for the mention! Poor little sad Christmas trees. We should think of some better way to use them after Christmas.
