Question from VICKI on 12-26-2012:

WHAT IS THE REASON FOR THE CATHOLIC TRADITION OF LEAVING THE CHRISTMAS TREE UP UNTIL AFTER THE NEW YEAR

Answer by Richard Geraghty on 12-26-2012:

Dear Vicki,

Just as Catholics celebrate the twelve days before Christmas, so they celebrate the twelve days after Christas.
