    Yes, I remember learning this in Sunday School. However, it doesn’t bother me when people get it “wrong,” since it’s not really something that’s common knowledge.

    Honestly I had never put that much thought into it either way! If you asked me when the 12 days of Christmas were I wouldn’t have known :-/

    @Woodstock:  I think some things are just considered common knowledge, even though (in this case, for example), the information might be wrong. It probably doesn’t occur to anyone to research it, since they think they already know it. I can see why it’s irritating to you. It’s like for me, when I hear people say “irregardless.” Lots of people assume that’s a correct thing to say, when it isn’t, and I want to smack them lol especially professionals.

    I did not know that, because my family only celebrates the holiday on the 24th and 25th at max.

    I always knew it because that was how long we would usually leave our Christmas tree up for after Christmas Day. Though sometimes it was longer because everyone was too lazy to take it down! LOL

    @Woodstock:  I did know that! Only learned that a few years ago from FH, who is Serbian and their traditional Christmas is on January 7th, the next day.

    @Woodstock:  It depends though, it can also be Jan 19 when Christmas Eve is celebrated on Jan 6.

    Nope I didn’t know that. I also put absolutely no thought into what they were. Good to know I guess

    Yup, I knew that. My family has a tradition of recognizing Epiphany. Also, Catholic school for 12 years will teach ya that, lol.

    @Woodstock:  I’m glad I know becuase I honestly had no idea. However, I never wondered what they meant. I was just happy to sing it! Learn something new every day 🙂

    Never thought about it because my family’s not religious at all, but I just learned this now! 😛
