Today is the day we celebrate the Wise Men giving their gifts to Jesus. Unfortunately, it also marks the end of the Christmas season.

The twelve days of Christmas are from Christmas Day evening to Epiphany. Twelfth night is the 5th of January. Thus, today marks the official end to the Christmas season and the decorations have to come down until next year.

(Twelfth Night also happens to be one of my favourite Shakespeare plays -- probably mainly because the heroine's name is Viola.)

In case you're not familiar with the twelve days of Christmas, here's the Wikipedia entry.
