    On the first day of Christmas, we were attacked. On the second day of Christmas, the enemy combatant who had been dispatched from Yemen to attack us—who boarded a plane to Detroit with a valid multiple-entry visa despite our having been warned about him by his father, despite his having spent months with an al Qaeda leader in Yemen who was closely monitored by U.S. intelligence, and despite his buying a one-way ticket with cash and boarding without luggage—was arraigned before a judge, provided with a lawyer, and informed of his right to remain silent. The Transportation Security Administration ordered...

    Twas the night before Kwanzaa, and throughout the White House,Not a Kenyan was stirring, not even his spouse.No stockings were hung from the chimney with care,Because greenhouse emissions would heat up the air.The children were each tucked away in their beds,No nightmares of Public School troubling their heads.

    The Twelve Days of Christmas are the days from Christmas until the beginning of Epiphany (January 6th; the 12 days count from December 25th until January 6th). On the updated calendar — since Ephiphany is celebrated on a Sunday — these days may be more or less. We have 20 days on the tree because this year the Christmas season extends until the feast of the Baptism of Christ and we have decided to include them all.The origin of the Twelve Days is complicated, and is related to differences in calendars, church traditions, and ways to observe this holy...

    Conservative Thoughts ^ | December 8, 2005 | John Kuethe
    I am writing to tell you about an article that appeared in my Church’s Sunday bulletin that explains the meaning of the Twelve Days of Children. In this time in our country when the Left is trying to stamp out all reference to God, I find this song, and its meaning, to be particularly significant. In England during the years 1528 to 1829, Catholics were not allowed to openly practice their faith. The song the Twelve Days of Christmas was written as a Catechism of learning for children and served as a reminder for adults. The symbolism in the song...

    The Twelve Days of Christmas are the days from Christmas until the beginning of Epiphany (January 8th; the 12 days count from December 25th until January 8th).

    CHRISTMAS AND EPIPHANY Sigrid Undset From our Lord's Birthday until Epiphany the Church keeps Christmas. The five joyful mysteries of the rosary, the antiphons and the prayers in the offices for Christmas, are the central point of our worship. Near the altar where He Himself lives clothed in the white garb of the Host, and where His mark, the crucifix, is placed over the tabernacle, there is now a crib—a little picture of the stable where the Word who became Flesh first opened His infant eyes. And round the little figure of the Christ Child stands the likeness of...
