Christmas not over yet

I don’t understand why so many people get rid of their Christmas decorations on the first day of the New Year. for one thing, its depressing in January, More importantly, there are 12 days of Christmas, Twelth Night is according to Wikipedia,  the evening of the fifth of January, preceding Twelfth Day, the eve of the Epiphany, formerly the last day of the Christmas festivities and observed as a time of merrymaking”. 

That’s a good as reason as any for a lst hurrah before the return to hard work and sobriety.

In Spain they eat a cake called the King’s Ring, see picture below,
