    05.12.14 Day Eight: 12 Days of Christmas

    Few people know the Twelve Days of Christmas song is essential Christian doctrine. Catholics in England composed the song during the 16th Century, who were forbidden by law to practice their faith as at the time, the only legal church in England was the state church. To teach their children the basic doctrine, they used nonsense songs that would not raise the suspicions of the non-Catholics around them, but would remind the children of their faith. The explanation of the twelve days is as follows:

    On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me”  (True Love being God, in this instance)

    The fist day of the Christmas celebration is counted from December 26, to January 6, the traditional day for celebrating the coming of the wise men to worship Jesus, also called the day of “Epiphany’:

    1. A Partridge in a Pair Tree (Jesus Christ)
    2. Two Turtle Doves (The Old and New Testaments)
    3. Three French Hens (Gold, Frankincense, Myrrh)
    4. Four Calling Birds (The Four Gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke and John)
    5. Five Golden Rings (The first five books of the Old Testament: the ‘law of Moses’)
    6. Six Geese A-Laying (Six Days of Creation)
    7. Seven Swans a Swimming (The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit)
    8. Eight Maids A-Milking (Christ’s faithfulness)
    9. Nine Ladies Dancing (Nine Fruits of the Spirit: Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and self-control)
    10. Ten Lords A-Leaping (The Ten Commandments)
    11. Eleven Pipers Piping (Eleven Original Apostles)
