Twelvetide

Twelvetide, also called Smoke Nights or The Twelve Quiet Days, falls between December 25 and January 6. It's a time of rest, contemplation and storytelling. During these twelve days, folks used to burn incense in their homes and stables to drive out evil influences and spirits, which were believed to be most active around this period. Other folk customs associated with The Twelve Days included making loud noises, wearing masks and costumes, and burning bonfires to scare off harmful spirits.

With this post you get an incense burner with animated smoke, a decorative pipe with stand and a pouch (for incense, or some herbal mixture to puff away). Recolours included; found under Deco > Miscellaneous for 141 and 155 Simoleans.
