The Twelve Days of Christmas

A Devotional Booklet for Meditating on the Season

By Tim Butler | Posted at 10:44

During the season of Advent, we look forward with great anticipation to celebrating the birth of Jesus, when God took on flesh and was born of a virgin more than 2000 years ago. However, often December 26 feels like such a letdown and we think, “What is there left to do but clean up after Christmas?” But we forget that Christmas Day is the beginning of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

When we think of the Twelve Days of Christmas, the first thing that comes to mind is the famous old Christmas carol of the same name. But, the Twelve Days of Christmas are the days between Christmas and Epiphany, the day we celebrate the visit of the Magi to Jesus. Last year, my friend Patrick and I put together a devotional to help us meditate on the meaning of Christmas over that twelve day period. Our little booklet of devotionals explores the responses to the birth of Jesus found in Scripture, both good and bad.

If you would like to join us in celebrating the Twelve Days of Christmas, please download the booklet The Twelve Days of Christmas: Twelve Responses here.

Re: The Twelve Days of Christmas

Didn't actually watch over the “fourth responder prerequisite” you incorporated into your question. To me, that speaks to a weight strategy (something I don't by and by tend to). Yet, a few people appreciate and flourish under weight conditions, so I figured this is one they'll have the capacity to delight in.
