It's the Twelve Days of Christmas like you've never known them before - and there isn't one single lord a-leaping!
After days - maybe months - of figuring out who to buy what for, how much to spend and where to get the bargains, Unitarian Universalist Minister Ann Keeler Evans came to last Friday's Happy Hour with something magical. Having suffered the heart-breaking loss of a sister just two months ago, Ann (also known as The Priestess) wrote the Twelve Days of Christmas and One Epiphany as her way of dealing with the challenges of celebrating a holiday season after loss.

To all who celebrate the birth of Jesus: Merry Christmas!
