12 days of xmas

i have always loved the The twelve days of Christmas. I love all the ornaments, plate settings, song etc... I really would love an entire set of plates with the Twelve days on it one day but that would be very hard to store somewhere as I am all packed out !  It would be awesome though. What I didn't know is that the 12 days starts on Christmas day and end on Jan 6. I always thought it was the 12 days prior. Weird right?  Per Wikipedia, (side bar this is not a good source for many things but hey for this why not) "the song are the twelve days starting Christmas Day, or in some traditions, the day after Christmas (December 26) (Boxing Day or St. Stephen's Day, as being the feast day of St. Stephen Protomartyr) to the day before Epiphany, or the Feast of the Epiphany (January 6, or the Twelfth Day). Twelfth Night is defined by the Oxford English Dictionary as "the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking." Interesting right?

Here are some beauties I found on the Internet.
