    No, Christians have TWELVE days. The season of Christmas BEGINS on December 25 and lasts until the Baptism of the Lord after Epiphany. (Remember, on the first day of Christmas…..?)

    • Melinda:
      You’re right! And my loving bride pointed that out to me last night, too. Unfortunately, however, most don’t celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas. Where I live here in South Carolina, it’s not uncommon to see cut Christmas trees sitting at the curb the day after Christmas. Good grief! Julia and I have always put up our tree as soon after Thanksgiving as possible—and we leave it up at least until Epiphany. But then, it’s not a cut tree. Seems to me (back to my original point) that most Christians do the gift-giving-be-with-family-peace-and-love-and-mistletoe thing only on Christmas day…and then that’s that. And that’s kinda sad, isn’t it?

        Hanukkah (also known as Chanukah, Hanukah, Hannuka and the Festival of Lights)…Ed, I’m not sure, but I think you have a typo in your title? -your favorite proofreader….

        • Hannukah. Hanukkah. Chanukah. Hanukah. Hannuka. I’ve seen so many spellings of it that I guess I just became confused. Still, I want to be sure I get it right. I went to the dictionary in my Mac software here and it gives the name as Hanukkah, one “n” and two “k”s. So, I’ve made the fix. Thanks for letting me know. Christmas blessings to you and your family.
