Last night was Twelfth Night, a time by when, traditionally, all our Christmas decorations should be taken down. Today is the Twelfth Day of Christmas also known as the feast of Epiphany. This word means 'to show, to make known, to reveal'. In Western churches, Epiphany features the story of the 'wise men from the east'.
