12 Days of Christmas, not Advent

I'm delighted to find a 12 Days of Christmas calendar; not the same as an Advent calendar!!! Advent calenders usually on December 1 and have 25 windows to open.
Christmas begins on December 25 and continues until January 5, when 12th night is celebrated, trees are undecorated, and Christmas things put away. Thus the 12 days of Christmas end.
Time to celebrate Epiphany - Jesus is for the whole world, not just the Jews. January 6 is Epiphany - when the Magi arrive at the house where Joseph, Mary, and the child Jesus are living. They (scripture does not say how many Magi) come bringing gifts of Gold, Myrrh and Frankincense.
