Have a Blessed Epiphany!
Were you already out for work and school yesterday after the long holidays and all? Not me, because our holidays will end just after today’s celebration for the Epiphany. It’s called Trettondedag Jul (Thirteenth Day of Christmas) in Swedish. But in other countries, it’s the Twelfth Day of Christmas in which the counting starts after the 25th of December. It is said that the children used to leave their shoes out the night before and would found gifts or candies the next day which is the Feast of the Epiphany left behind by the Three Kings or the Three Wise Men. In this case, be sure not to leave those bad-smelling shoes or you would find the three men lying unconscious on the ground (kidding!). Have a joyous Epiphany to you all!
