I agree that the 6th is the twelfth day but the nights start with the one between Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, as that is when, according to tradition, He was born.

Ah but, Ken, if you were in Spain, as we have been at this time of the year, then on the Day of Epiphany, 6th January, there are processions of the Three Kings; Magi bringing their gifts to the Newborn King; and wonderful glittering decorations everywhere on that magic day.

I love Woodlands Junior School site and have used its contents on many occasions but, for me, Twelfth Night is tomorrow. :-)

Even junior school children know that twelfth night starts on the fifth.
