TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS

The 12 days of Christmas is the period that in Christian theology marks the span between the birth of Christ and the coming of the Magi — the three wise men. It begins on December 25 (Christmas) and runs through January 6 (the Epiphany, sometimes also called Three Kings' Day). Additionally, the four weeks preceding Christmas are collectively known as Advent, which begins four Sundays before Christmas and ends on December 24.

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree

On the second day ...Two turtle doves 

On the third day ... Three French hens
On the fourth day ... Four calling birds
On the fifth day ... Five gold rings (pheasant collars)

On the sixth day ... Six geese a laying
On the seventh day ... Seven swans a swimming

On the eighth day ... Eight maids a milking


On the ninth day ... Nine ladies dancing

On the tenth day ... Lords a leaping

On the eleventh day ... Eleven pipers piping

On the twelfth day ... Twelve drummers drumming
