It’s that time of the year! The time when people smirk and ask me why I haven’t taken down my Christmas decorations yet.
Well, I have taken down my Christmas decorations – but I haven’t taken down my Epiphany decorations. You may remember that I have a lovely nativity set which came out on Christmas Day. The shepherds, sheep, goat and donkey are in the stable.
We've now moved on to the Epiphany (6th January) and the magi have arrived complete with camel. The shepherds are no longer in the stable.
They have returned to their fields and are still watching their sheep.
They have been like this for a week now and they will all stay in place until 2nd February (which is Candlemas) when they will all return to obscurity.
