Old Christmas at Rodanthe


Abstract:
Old Christmas, sometimes known as Little Christmas, Twelfth Day, or Epiphany, is a celebration taking place on the twelfth day after Christmas, counting Christmas as the first day and marking the end of the Christmas holidays. Rodanthe is the only place in North Carolina where the custom of celebrating Old Christmas is continued, and this is traditional with the inhabitants there, the custom having been handed down from the English ancestors who settled on that strip of shore.
