In this 12 part series I will share the themes and secrets I use to plan my adventures. Let’s call it my Christmas gift to you: The 12 Days of Travel Themes.
How do you find such interesting places to visit?
As a travel blogger I frequently hear this question. It is this very question that inspired me to start blogging in the first place. The process of putting together an itinerary thrills me. I simply follow the path of curiosity. Curiosity will lead you to an infinite source of new places, people and ideas.
The 12 Days of Christmas
Let’s take a minute to be curious about the origin of the 12 Days of Christmas tradition.
I discovered some interesting facts about which days are actually “The 12”. Most of us can sing, or bluff our way through the Christmas carol. But do we know when this gift-giving tradition should start? I realized that I was mixing up Advent with The 12 Days of Christmas. ( The secular media seems to be equally confused.)
Advent technically begins four Sundays before Christmas and leads up to December 24th. The 12 Days of Christmas on the other hand traditionally started on December 25th and led up to Epiphany January 5th. Both celebrations have their roots in Christian religious traditions.
Because most of us believe the 12 Days of Christmas start 12 days before December 25th, I am going to share these posts each day from December 12-24.
