But 6 January marks an important date for many people in the Christmas calendar.
That is because it is the date of something called Epiphany.
What is Epiphany?
Epiphany – also known as Three Kings’ Day – is a Christian festival, which starts on 6 January.
It is a special date in the Christmas story as it’s when people celebrate how a star led the Magi – also known as the Three kings or the Wise Men – to visit the baby Jesus after he had been born.
This is why you might hear people say they’ve had an epiphany, when they’ve just realised something.
In some countries many families will take off 6 January and exchange presents. In Spain and Latin America, El Dia de los Reyes is just as important as Christmas Day itself.
Eastern Orthodox Christians actually celebrate Christmas on Epiphany, so it’s an important religious occasion.
What is Twelfth Night?
The date of Epiphany also happens around the time for Twelfth Night too.
Traditionally, Twelfth Night marks the end of Christmas – 12 nights after Christmas.
But the date of it is a little bit confusing. It can fall on 5 January or 6 January, according to different traditions.
If the 12 nights are counted from Christmas Day night itself, it falls on 5 January. Anglicans mark Twelfth Night on 5 January.
But some other churches count it from the following day, which means Twelfth Night falls on 6 January.
