Thanks Christin. I wasn't offended but I just thought I must have missed part of the conversation or something. My mom lived in the uk for several years and had a difficult time celebrating thanksgiving there too. Part of that was the lack of American ingredients integral to our traditional meal.

I try to celebrate epiphany because I think it is a fun tradition (kings cake and hats etc) but almost no one knows what it is.

Heidi. Thanks for the info about using a 'wavy' mount. Makes perfect sense. My mounts are all straightedge, but your share has me wanting to try loading them using shaped masked & see how that works out.

This is a real tangent. Epiphany is the 12th day of Christmas, such as in Shakespere's Twelfth Night. The religious side pertains to when the 3 Kings (wise guys) came to visit Baby Jesus. Thus, the paper crowns and the King's cake. The King's cake is a small cake with a bean baked into it (I have used a coffee bean). The person who finds the bean wins a prize and a bigger crown to wear. Some people who have fancy nativity sets put the wisemen across the room until January 6th.

I bet this is more widely celebrated in Europe. I knew what it was when I was a kid, but I didn't start doing the kings cake and special dinner, Christmas poppers, until I had my own kids. I think it is fun.

I like 'tangets'--'specially the seedless kind

Epiphany? Yep. Our local bakeries make King cakes. Not sure what they put in. Might be a tiny plastic baby. And for Mardi Gras in New Orleans they also do 'King Cakes'.

While we're talking traditions. Here's a tree-rlated one. The yule log. I believe it was always large enough to burn until 12th night & a small piece was saved to light next year's log. 'Course these days most people buy the cake version of them--Swiss Colony has them.
