For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12-25-15, luckily Old Christmas refers to the continuation of the Christmas celebration until January 6, the day of Epiphany, so I'm not late in posting this. :) I found out more speaking with my sister living in Spain. January 6th celebrates the day the Three Wise Men brought gifts to baby Jesus. It took them 12 days to walk there after His birth, therefore the January date. Those 12 days in Spain mean much to the people and the tourists who enjoy the many festivities. In the recent past most presents for Christmas weren't delivered until Jan. 6th, though that's changing these days to make room for Santa Claus and school vacation schedules. This arrangement comes from Bruce Greene, who recorded Kentucky fiddler Manon Campbell and also listened to the Lomax LOC 1937 recording of another Kentucky fiddler, Uncle George Custer Nicholson (1854 - 1941).

Never heard that tune or anything about it, but of course I'm familiar with Epiphany. Well played.
