  6. The Twelve Days of Christmas start December 25 and end January 6, which is Epiphany. Last week I passed a Christian bookstore with a sign advertising a Twelve Days of Christmas sale. I thought that was sad that the Christian bookstore didn’t even seem to know when the Twelve Days are or that they were doing it just to make sales.
