Geocache Description:

The Third Day of Christmas.

This is the third of a series of 12 winter friendly, beginner caches.  Most of the caches have tradeable swag but you will need to bring a pen or pencil to sign the log for each cache.

John the Evangelist (Feast Day of)

John the Evangelist (יוחנן Standard Hebrew Yoḥanan, Tiberian Hebrew Yôḥānān meaning "Yahweh is gracious", Greek: Εὐαγγελιστής Ἰωάννης) was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. Traditionally, he is identified as the author of the Gospel of John and other Johannine works in the New Testament — the three Epistles of John and the Book of Revelation. He is also known as the Beloved Disciple, which is how he referred to himself in his Gospel. Traditionally, he is considered to be the same man as John of Patmos and John the Apostle, but this has been the subject of some debate since about 200.

The feast day of Saint John in the Roman Catholic Church, which calls him "Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist", and in the Anglican Communion, which calls him "John, Apostle and Evangelist", is on 27 December. In the Tridentine Calendar he was commemorated also on each of the following days up to and including 3 January, the Octave of the 27 December feast. This Octave was abolished by Pope Pius XII in 1955.
