Because it's the twelfth night after Christmas. The feast of the Epiphany, January 6. always a night for a big party. There would be a cake - in France there still is - and in the cake, a bean, Whoever got the bean in his slice became King for the night, in honour of the Three kings. There might also be entertainment. Shakespeare wrote a play for the occasion.
