Twelfth Night

Well, tonight is the twelfth night of Christmas. I expect a lot of people don’t know why Christmas has twelve days, I know I didn’t. I’m sure I could’ve looked it up somewhere, but I took the easy way out and asked God. To my surprise she didn’t make me go look it up.

The reason is camels.

When Christ was born a star shone brightly in the sky over his manger. The three wise men saw this sign, did some hasty Christmas shopping, then mounted up on their camels and rode out to meet Jesus.

It took twelve days to get there.

I wonder how many days of Christmas there’d be if they’d ridden elephants instead?
