Merry Christmas! Today is Christmas and, well, the official start of the 12 Days of Christmas.
In case you didn't know, the 12 days of Christmas isn't just a popular song (though, come on, who doesn't love that ditty?). The time period actually refers to the days from December 25, which is celebrated as the birth of Jesus Christ, to the Epiphany, which is celebrated on January 6 as the day that his glory was realized.
Well, religious technicality aside, what I really love about the 12 days of Christmas is spending my time relaxing and loving spending time with my family. And, let me tell you, my family likes to enjoy our time together, too. So much so that this year I'm doing things a little differently and treating everyone to these 12 Latin cocktails during the holiday season. Drink up the Christmas cheer!
