(January 06) Today we're celebrating . . .  Three Kings Day, et al

Three Kings Day (Little Christmas, Epiphany, Twelfth Day, Greek Christmas, La Befana, and the 12th Day of Christmas)
January 6th is the traditional day the Magi, or the Three Kings, visited the Christ Child. They came bearing gifts of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh.

Today is also known as Little Christmas, Epiphany, Twelfth Day, Greek or Orthodox Christmas, La Befana (Italy) and the 12th Day of Christmas.

And yes, however you celebrate today, its time to take the tree down because Christmas is officially over!
