A Post for the Twelfth Day of Christmas

Today is the twelfth day of Christmas.  The tree is coming down, the decorations are being stashed in the attic, and the music will soon be switched over to non-holiday fare.  In advance of all this end-of-Christmas activity, I’ve put together a little pictorial review of our holiday.  Some of the photos are mine, but many of them are David’s.

This Christmas . . . .
