Brought to you by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
Even before I began to immerse myself in Shakespeare and the Elizabethan period in England, I loved the celebration of Twelfth Night.This brief article from the Folger introduces this extraordinary Elizabethan holiday period. Reread Twelfth Night or see a performance in your area. With thanks to the Folger and holiday good wishes to the Shakespeare Institute in Stratford, my happy home for two years when it was in Birmingham.
“The Twelve Days of Christmas, from December 25 to January 6, was the longest and most enthusiastically celebrated festival in the Elizabethan calendar.”
