Why is today the 2nd day of the 12 days of answers?

And what exactly ARE the 12 days of Christmas anyway (from the original song), and where do they come from?

If today is day 2, that makes Christmas EVE day 12, instead of Christmas DAY. That's what prompted my question. I realized I don't even know when the 12th day is "supposed" to be!

:o)

  • The 12 days of Christmas are actually the days between Christmas and Epiphany (Jan 6th). December 25th is the first day of Christmas.

  • Maybe because we'll all be too busy on the 25th to answer questions perhaps?
