Celebrate Twelfth Night

Twelfth Night, the eve of January 5, is in English folk custom the end of Christmas merrymaking and in ancient Celtic tradition the end of the 12-day winter solstice celebration. On Twelfth Night, it was customary for the assembled company to toast one another from the wassail bowl. In Old English, wassail means "Be in good health," but the term also was applied to the drink itself (usually spiced ale).

Hello, Nurse Nightengale! Good health to you while you care for the miserable ones-and a happy Twelfth Night to you too! About the Christmas traditions, which cannily connect onto the old Winter Solstice traditions, doesn't this lead up to January 6, Epiphany, commemorating the arrival of the Three Kings bringing gifts to the Christ Child in Bethlehem?
