I think #10 can have two dates. It is celebrated on the 5th in parts of Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium. I always knew it as the 5th and was surprised it was the 6th.

FYI - for purposes of this and other quiz questions, the correct answer will (hopefully) be the most universally accepted answer............. There may be small areas of the possibility of alternate answers (in this case, parts of Germany, for instance).

As pertains to this question..................
The Twelve Days of Christmas are the festive days beginning Christmas Day (25 December). This period is also known as Christmastide and Twelvetide. The Twelfth Night of Christmas is always on the evening of 5 January, but the Twelfth Day can either precede or follow the Twelfth Night according to which Christian tradition is followed. Twelfth Night is followed by the Feast of the Epiphany on 6 January. In some traditions, the first day of Epiphany (6 January) and the twelfth day of Christmas overlap.

I learned that January 6th was the day of Jesus' circumcision. The Bris. That was the reason for the celebration on the 6th. A major day for those of the Jewish faith. As Jesus was.
