You can find the other videos in the series linked in the description down below. In today's video I'm going to explain a little about what twelfth night is… and give a massive thank you to all of you for not only sticking through the series and watching to the end but also- Thank you to everyone who purchased my Christmas merch bracelets, I've really loved seeing photos of you enjoying them on twitter and instagram. It makes my heart so happy! However, I have taken onboard requests for a wider range of styles and also some 'less girlie' designs, which- fair. So! I will be launching a whole new range of merch on my birthday, the 25th of January! How many times can I say that on Youtube? There will be so many different items for you to choose from and also a range of styles! [applause sound effect] Follow me on Twitter: JessicaOOTC for up to the minute details on when things will be released and a few sneak peaks of designs! What is twelfth night? It's the… twelfth... night… of Christmastide! (see video 1 to understand christmastide- card) It's a festival in some branches of Christianity that takes place on the last night of the Twelve Days of Christmas, although different traditions mark the date of Twelfth Night differently As either 5th January or 6th January, depending on which day one considers to be the first of the Twelve Days: the 25th or 26th December… Never really sure of anything It's also one of my favourite Shakespeare plays! Twelfth night is often marked by a party, check. Singing Christmas carols, meh. Merrymaking, check! And baking a Twelfth Night cake or 'king cake', made of a sweet brioche dough in the shape of a hollow circle with a glazed topping sprinkled with colored sugar and has a bean inside! We decided to go full on rainbow cake! Because: gay. Sometimes the cake has a small plastic baby inside (to represent the Baby Jesus) and the person who gets the piece of cake with the toy has various privileges and obligations to that baby But often it just has a bean and a pea and the people who find those in their slice are respectively designated king and queen of the night's festivities! We did not do that but I did get to wear a paper crown again so I was very excited. In most English-speaking countries we declare it terrible luck to leave your christmas decorations up after twelfth night and Claudia was in fact so upset at this prospect that despite my migraine I spent four hours taking every darn decoration down and neatly packing them away into their storage boxes because love! Also, she was collating everything I need for my tax returns at the same time so she really deserved me listening to her superstitions. Or maybe they're not superstitions? One year we missed the deadline and ended up just having to keep the Christmas tree in the garden until it was dry enough for firewood. And you know what year followed that christmas...? 2016! Widely known as 'a terrible year' according to the internet. Although I did also marry the love of my life that year so really, it was pretty great. For me. Less said about the general the better. On to happier subjects: how have you enjoyed my Christmastide series? Did you like it more than my previous years vlogmases? There was less vlogging, granted more talking and explaining things, so maybe some of you didn't like it and prefer vlogmas. But this was really the only way I could do Disability History Month and the profiles that quite a few of you seemed to enjoy throughout December and I'll definitely be doing more of the profiles. Let me know what you've thought and felt and what you would like to see next year. Usual programming will resume this Friday with a review of The Favourite because I cannot. With much Christmas love, I do declare Christmas-tired to be officially over! Jessica out.
