On the 12th day of Christmas its time to de-dec the halls, eat King Cake and go a wassailing…

Epiphany is the 12th and last day of Christmas, the day associated with the coming of the 3 kings (or wise men) with gifts of Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh for the baby Jesus.

Its also traditionally time to take down the Christmas tree and other decorations. And time to go a-wassailing.
