Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Twelfth Night

It's Twelfth Night
(the night before Epiphany)
We'll have the wassail on
and the yule log is burning.

Tea will be ginger snaps
as they are proper Twelfth Night fare.

We'll also watch the movie
Twelfth Night or What You Will

And tomorrow we shall have our Galette des Rois
the French "King's Cake"

Puff pastry filled with an almond cream

A real French feve hidden inside

And for tea,
we shall invite three
(for there were three wisemen)

The end of Christmas

Oh I just love that you carry on those traditions. We have never done any of the before and after Christmas traditions but I've always wanted to. My daughter's birthday is today on the Epiphany.
Thanks for sharing these traditions with us. Your home is always so cozy feeling.

I adore that you celebrate the Epiphany with a Tea and a Kings Cake on the Twelfth Night!
