A Moose in a Maple Tree
We are now officially into the Christmas Season which doesn't begin in the church year until Christmas Day. This is the shortest of our liturgical seasons (12 days) and takes us through until the Day of Epiphany which is January sixth. We all know the Twelve Days of Christmas song, even if we can't remember it all. The Christian tradition has been a shameless "borrower" from other religious traditions when it comes to the liturgical calendar and our twelve days are likely rooted in the pagan Yule celebrations.
Here is a Canadian version of the Twelve Days which is just great.
