Re: 12 Days of Christmas
I have never heard of The Epiphany. I'm assuming it's because I'm not Catholic, have no Catholic family or friends, or any other ties to Catholicism. I was raised Baptist and am still Baptist.
I have always thought that the 12 days of Christmas led UP to Christmas, not come after it.
So, I'm assuming that it's because the non-Catholic people (like myself) just got it wrong and it's turned into a fun way to count down to Christmas.
