We also made a point of reading Good King Wenceslas by Mary Reed Newland -- not only was today "the feast of Stephen" -- we were also able to look out our window at snow that "lay round about, deep and crisp and even."

Keeping Christmas: The First Day
We celebrate Christmas, and we celebrate Epiphany, and in between we celebrate a patron saint's feast day and New Year's Day. But this year I wanted to make the entire Christmas season festive and celebratory, and so for the first time we are enjoying The Twelve Days of Christmas with bits of verse and fun, small gifts.
