On the First Day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree
The true origin of the song “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is from France ..alas 3 French hens.. Songs like Oh Christmas Tree (O Tannenbaum – German) dates back to the 16th century. These old Christmas songs have stayed with us to this day. When we talk about the Twelve Days of Christmas, the first day starts on BOXING DAY or what is sometimes called Christmas day.
What are the 12 Days of Christmas?
You are allowed to continue your merriment for twelve more days after Dec25th. NICE! I have never practiced this long time tradition. If I start following the 12 day Credo, I will have to look for a pear tree and of course a partridge. This may prove to be challenging. What happens on the last day; the 12th day? The 12th day ends on January 6th and is called the Epiphany. The religious meaning is described as the “vision of God“..a revelation that Jesus Christ is the son of God. That is what an Epiphany means. When we claim to experience an epiphany of our own we see things clearly. We see the light, if you will. A true epiphany is a rare moment in life. Some of us actually experience an true Epiphany of sorts. I wonder if I will get one this year? My Christmas wish is that everyone gets an epiphany this year! That would be grand.
Paul’s 12 Days of Christmas!
Since I will not be able to get a partridge in a pear tree. I will have to create my own version of 12 days of Christmas. And, I encourage you to do the same thing. After all we should keep the festivities going and keep celebrating 12 days after Dec 25th wraps up. Don’t you think so? Hey..give it a go!
My “Personal” Twelve days of Christmas
DAY 1. On the first day of Christmas,
I will read “one” good book (start reading)
