The countdown to Christmas has officially started at Santa Santa Claus now that Santa Claus is back from his Summer Holidays!
Already Santa’s little helpers; the Elves; are busy in Santa’s Workshop making toys and gifts for everyone on Santa’s nice list, so Santa Claus and his reindeer sleigh can deliver sackfuls of Christmas gifts in the early hours of the morning of 25th December Christmas Day.
When do the Twelve Days of Christmas start?
The 12 twelve days of Christmas are the festive days beginning the first day of Christmas 25th December; known also as Christmas Day, Christmastide or Twelvetide depending where you live.
The 12th Twelfth Day of Christmas is 5th January with Twelfth night being celebrated on the evening of January 5th, at the end of which all your Christmas decorations must be taken down.
The 12 Twelve Days of Christmas (and nights) are celebrated in different ways around the world. For example, in some parts of the world, giving and receiving gifts is traditional on Christmas Day only, whilst in other parts gifts are exchanged on Twelfth Night only; and in some part, gifts are given on each of the 12 twelve nights ; IF you’ve been especially good all year and are on Santa Claus’ extra special nice list!
At Santa Santa Claus we’ve got something special planned for EVERY day of the 12 days of Christmas from 25th December to 5th January – so make sure you check back here on Christmas Day for an extra special surprise. Before that though we’ve got a super Santa Santa Claus Advent Calendar for you starting on 1st December through to 24th December. Watch this space!
