Today is Christmas Day. Most people think of it as the end of the Christmas season, but, in a way, it is the beginning. When you hear about the Twelve Days of Christmas, you probably think about the twelve days leading up to Christmas. Actually, the twelve days begin on December 25 and end on the Epiphany in January. In old times, people would exchange presents all throughout the twelve days, hence the origin of the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song. If you haven’t managed to give all your Christmas presents, don’t be discouraged. You still have eleven days!
Here at PEPS, we want to honor the real twelve days of Christmas. We are celebrating by outlining a classic Christmas film every day. During the Breen Code era, most of the famous Christmas classics were made. Some of them focus on the Christian origins of the holiday, others are strictly secular, and some feature a combination of both elements. This Christmas, PEPS is providing you with one Christmas film for each day of the Twelve Days of Christmas. These films are Christmas presents which were lovingly prepared by Joseph I. Breen for all people to enjoy for all time. He reviewed, revised, purified, refined, guaranteed, and sealed each one. If you have watched these movies this season, I hope to share a different look at them with you. If you haven’t, I hope that I will inspire you to watch them again and relive their magic.
