Twelfth Night: 2017 For those with Christmas in their hearts, the holiday of tradition, family, and merriment is never over. So, when January arrives they eagerly look forward to when they can begin the holiday season again. This is why Twelfth Night is so important, it marks the last of the twelve days of Christmas—when the holiday season is officially over (and, thus, justification as to when you can safely begin planning the next one). To celebrate Twelfth Night, Vaillancourt Folk Art is offering a unique promotional Chalkware Santa. For 2017, the Russian Father Christmas is now available to retail customers around the world. Originally introduced in 1989, this piece has been reissued in a limited quantity to celebrate the 2017 Twelfth Night celebration. Painted in a historic green coat with white fur, this piece emphasizes the painting techniques that were “new” to the Vaillancourt Folk Art line in the late 1980s. With a subtle metallic gold paint for the buttons and dark grey beard, this Russian Father Christmas shares both image and tradition of a historic Eastern European Christmas. This promotion is available only while supplies last.
