(The Twelve Days of Christmas, which are usually counted from the evening of December 25th until the morning of January 6th, which is the Twelfth Day. In following this older custom of counting the days beginning at sundown, the evening of January 5th is the Twelfth Night.)
Epiphany (from the ancient Greek ἐπιφάνεια, epiphaneia, "manifestation, striking appearance") the realization or comprehension of the larger essence or meaning of something.)
Every year tens of thousands of children and young adults die in car accidents. And everywhere grieving parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, godparents and friends are left behind. Every day these children are remembered by their families. But once a year, around the world, we do not only remember our own, but all the children. On the second Sunday in December, at 7:00 P.M. we place a light in our windows. As the lights are extinguished in one time zone, they are lit in another so that a lightwave is created in these 24 hours around the world. Every light in a window was a child that illuminated life.
Slow down you're doing fine
You can't be everything you want to be
Before your time...
