Here is a quote from the blog of Mushy Cloud with the heading LET THE LIGHT IN:

“Have you ever wondered about the phrase “having an epiphany”? It’s usually where we experience sudden clarity or insight into something we have perhaps been struggling with. Another way to look at it is that light is thrown onto a difficult issue or situation. The magi, or wise men, found the same when they arrived in Bethlehem after Jesus’ birth.”

End of Christmas: Twelfth Night, Eve of Epiphany and taking down your tree

“‘ ‘ ‘ Today is that 12th day, Jan. 5. It’s been a tradition since Victorian England to celebrate the end of Christmas on Twelfth Night, taking down the evergreens of Christmas season and lighting a bonfire. . . . . . ‘
