Crafts for Every Holiday

Twelfth Night (Epiphany): January 6

Traditionally, this is the day the Three Kings from the Orient came to Bethlehem bearing gifts for baby Jesus. It's called Twelfth Night because it's the twelfth night after Christ's birth.

Get some incense made from frankincense and myrrh. Check in religious shops, health food stores with larger herb departments, and herb specialty shops. Learn what frankincense and myrrh look and smell like. Find out where they come from and how they were used.

Another nice idea is to make a treasure cake, which is a cake with charms, coins, or small rings hidden inside. A plum cake is traditional, but a pound cake works just as well. You can even use a store-bought cake and insert the objects, then cover the cake with icing. This is a fun holiday to counteract the letdown of Christmas past and prolong the Christmas spirit.
