The 12 Days of Christmas (right-click on the file for download)
So the other day Allan and I were headed home from the “Yellow Room” and this version of “The 12 Days of Christmas” came on the radio. Immediately the child that has been learning to count said “Dad they are counting wrong! And that is not how to sing that song!” All I could do was laugh! Even as a 4yr old he has heard the crazy repeated nature of “The 12 Days of Christmas” and knew enough to know that this version was not correct!
Come on if you really tried could you get “The 12 Days of Christmas” in order? It would be like trying to name all of the reindeer, the 7 dwarfs, the 12 disciples and so on! We think we can, but to no avail we tend to fail more than we succeed.
So as you “wrap” up these last 12 days till Christmas try your best to succeed! Christmas is about celebrating and acknowledging the Christ Child. It is not about whether or not we find that perfect gift or get “The 12 Days of Christmas” in order!
