What is "Twelfth Night"?

Twelfth Night is a festival that concludes the Twelve Days of Christmas. It is said to be the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking.

Traditions

Food and drink are the center of the celebrations in modern times, and all of the most traditional ones go back many Christmas at the Mansioncenturies. The punch called wassail is consumed especially on Twelfth Night, but throughout Christmas time. Around the world, special pastries, such as the tortell and king cake are baked on Twelfth Night, and eaten the following day.

In colonial America, a Christmas wreath was always left up on the front door of each home, and when taken down at the end of the Twelve Days of Christmas, any edible portions would be consumed with the other foods of the feast.

The same held true in the 19th-20th centuries with fruits adorning Christmas trees. Fresh fruits were hard to come by, and were therefore considered fine and proper gifts and decorations for the tree, wreaths, and home. Again, the tree would be taken down on Twelfth Night, and such fruits, along with nuts and other local produce used, would then be consumed.
