From my poetry page in my website

You can’t light the tree till Christmas eve
mother would exclaim
Jesus wasn’t borne till holy Christmas day
And the tree remained
till three kings were well upon their way
On the feast of Holy Family
the Sunday after Three Kings Day
Then it was taken down
and only then was it hauled away

The tree placed in front window
for all to see
Strung with popcorn
and cranberries on on threaded line
and garlands of tinsel had to be
But first the lights
checking bulbs making sure they were seen
Then leaded icicles
that dad would toss with glee
The tree sat in the window till Holy Family day
Those who were missed were seen throughout those days
and especially on Three Kings (Jan 6th)
We called it Little Christmas day
those who missed their gifts
The paperboy,the mailman,
not forgotten on Little Christmas day

On This “Little Christmas”
January 6th

Once Upon a Time and not too long ago
The Twelfth Night Of Christmas
was celebrated with a ball
From the Day of Babes Birth
and the 11 thereafter
kith and kin were paid a visit
and friends from far and near
once were paid a call
So on this day I pray in the spirit that this date recalls
Let the gift of homage of kings gain
in the spirit of the days this season yet remain
ere it wane
Be thine Blessings Great
and misfortunes thee none befall
