Christmas is officially over tomorrow - 12 Days

Today - January 5th - is the 12th day of Christmas.

Time to take down the decorations this weekend. And drop off your tree to be recycled. In Dallas, you can drop off real trees at the McCommas Bluff Landfill or Northwest Transfer Station on Harry Hines Boulevard. Trees can also be placed curbside during brush and bulk trash collection.

The "Christmas Season" doesn't really begin after Thanksgiving and end on Christmas Day like we tend to think. It's actually almost the opposite.

The 12 Days of Christmas start on Christmas Day and last until the evening of the 5th January - also known as Twelfth Night. The feast of the Epiphany is celebrated on January 6th and the celebrations of Christmas come to an end. The Epiphany commemorates the arrival of the Magi - the three wise men - who visited Jesus.

So enjoy this twelfth night and final Christmas celebrations. And then your neighbors may thank you for getting your decorations down before the next holiday.
