The Twelfth Day of Christmas - no partridges or pear trees, though. Just the dim grey turning quickly into dark. And tomorrow is a school day.
I know I'll sleep badly tonight, tossing and turning and sweating my way to morning. It's a grim day, the first school day after a long holiday.
I wish I could put it off for a week.
The Swedish word for the day is trettondagen, which is what the Swedes call the Sixth of January, also known as Epiphany.
