12 Days of Christmas

We all know the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" at least most of us do.  But have you ever wondered about the meaning ? I had NO idea of the controversy with the song when I started this article.   Apparently,  there is a huge urban legend around it which both Snopes and Urban Legends both dispute, but there are a lot of  other sites which mention each of the days gifts were hidden meanings representing something within Christianity and Catholicism.  Bet you didn't know that did you?   I sure didn't  I just wanted something fun to share - so rather than get bogged down in heavy controversy I'll just share a couple of links at the end of the article  and share a silly fact about each day in some form or fashion.

Day 1 --A Partridge in a Pear Tree 

There are 47 different types of partridges an MOST are considered endangered 

And now  on the first day of Christmas  my first share with you *drum roll*  is of course a fun version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas"  by Straight No Chaser.   It's really worth the watch so take a minute or 3:30 to be exact and  enjoy.
