The Twelfth Day of Christmas is still celebrated in many parts of the world. In Thunder Bay we often refer to this day as Ukrainian Christmas.

At Little Lions we watch for the arrival of the three kings by moving the wooden figures closer and closer to the crèche. We often tell the story of Baboushka on that day. In some programs, the children will eat a cake that has been baked with a large bean hidden inside it. Whoever finds the bean is the person who gets wear a crown for the rest of the day.
