Twelfth Night



Twelfth Night




Old Christmas is past,
Twelve tide is the last,
And we bid you adieu,
Great joy to the new.

There is a tradition, at least here in southern RI, that Twelfth Night is a Feast of Fools where master and servants change places.  Our local very fine chorus always does a Twelfth Night celebration somewhat like the Christmas Revels, a perfect way to say farewell to the season.  And, yes, the days are beginning to lengthen.

Good Health and Joy to All in 2012!

As always, thanks for stopping by.............-s-

  4. Hi Meredith...Welcome to the monkey house!

    Hi Tracey and Linda....I think it would be fun if we all made Santas next year and posted them on the same day.
