Fuzzy.Coffee.Books: Twelve Days of Christmas Giveaway!


Did y'all know that the actual Twelve Days of Christmas are the days after Christmas, from December 26th and Epiphany (Jan. 6th)?

YES I DID! In fact the Wise Men weren't anywhere near Bethlehem when Jesus was born . They saw the Star Shining in the East and followed it exactly to the place where He lived. Jesus was already 9 months old when the wise men arrived .I bet you didn't know that .
