Compilation album by The Residents
Released 2004

The 12 Days of Brumalia was an internet event presented by The Residents and Residents.com that resulted in an album of the same name. For 12 days, starting on December 25, a new song was posted on Residents.com web site along with an illustration and a quote. On the 13th day, The Residents presented the epic musical work, The Feast of Epiphany.

Homer Flynn of The Cryptic Corp has stated "The Brumalia songs were a present for those who visited the site every day. It is not for those who didn't. It is not a gift for the world. Think about it, the Brumalia songs would still be on residents.com if we wished to have them shared. They should not be archived and shared."

Ralph America collected the audio track for a CD release in the summer of 2004.

12 Days of Brumalia was reissued in November 2014 as a compilation with Prelude to "The Teds".
