The 12 Days of Christmas - Eve of the Epiphany Jan 5, 2022

Also called "Twelfth night," this is the last day of Christmas and the day before Epiphany. Historically, feasts and evening parties were held on this day through-out villages (and many cultures still hold theses traditions presently). During these parties, roles in society were often reversed, with servants being served by the nobles. Sometimes a coin or dried bean was baked into a rich king's cake, and whoever found the coin or bean in their slice was lord or lady of the evening.

Today, January 5 is still a fantastic excuse for hosting an evening party with friends to celebrate the finale of Christmastide.
