  1. 12 Days of Christmas

  2. Why sing "The Twelve Days of Christmas"? Why are there 12 days, anyway? And why so many birds? 1. "The Twelve Days of Christmas" is a very popular song. Did you know that the 12 days refers to the days between Christ’s birth and the Magi’s (the three wise men) arrival bearing gifts? 2. Some historians think that some of today’s song words aren’t the original ones. Colly bird (black as coal, blackbirds) has become calling birds, and five golden rings (meaning ring-necked birds such as pheasants) now are assumed to be circles that go around fingers. The original words meant that the first seven gifts were all birds! Whatever its origins, the gaveiment of giving gifts to your true love around this season is lovely. EXTRA CREDIT (10 points): Change the song’s words to fit your life? Make a list of gifts you could give to those you love. Figure out the number of syllables in each line so you can substitute words that fit the song’s rhythm.
