Today is the twelfth and last day of Christmas. I’m sorry if your true love didn’t get you twelve drummers drumming. I didn’t get any either. I did get some very nice chocolates though, which is much better than having twelve people drumming inside my house.

Tomorrow is Epiphany, the Feast Day that celebrates “the revelation of God incarnate as Jesus Christ.” It’s associated with Christ’s birth and the appearance of the three wise men.

Epiphany is the traditional start of Carnival season in Louisiana, so I plan to bake some King Cakes to celebrate.
