I agree on all counts! And I really don't mean to be an "insufferable know-it-all". That is just one of my little pet peeves.

My husband and I were just talking about the 12 Days of Christmas today, Deborah. I read a theory that one reason this misconception exists is that stores like to start sales immediately after Christmas day, and people lose the holiday feeling right away, until New Year's Eve comes around, which is a completely different animal. Personally, I think that it just gets confused with the tradition of the Advent Calendar.

Either way, I'm serious about the 4-minute plank: I'll believe it when I see it!

Ok, I'm sorry, but I just have to say this. The 12 days of Christmas are NOT the 12 days before Christmas. The "twelve days" refers to the 12 days of Christmastide in the church calendar. It begins on December 25 and ends when the season of Epiphany begins on January 6th.

But I'll try the challenge anyway. LOL

If anyone here can do a 4-minute plank, I expect to see a vlog!
