I know I know

I know what the 12 Days of Christmas are and I know why Christmas is sometimes spelled Xmas. Do you?

The twelve days of Christmas are what my dad invokes whenever we put up the tree. It may not ever come down before January 6 because that would be breaking the 12DOC. Helps that we don't put it up until December 20 or so.

It's spelled Xmas because X is the lonliest letter that you'll ever see. For Christmas, we let it come out to play.

One of the above is false.

Re:
Heheheheheh. Great answers though. Right after Xmas, I'm always driving around going, "OK folks you can take the lights down now!" Some people leave them up 'till Easter.

I love the people who leave them up all year. "Yep. I put up the lights 'round 'bout '72 and they've been up there evers since. Right purty they are, sittin' there all not-lighted in the middle of July."

Re:
Worse yet, I've seen people who light them year-round.
