On the twelth day of Christmas
My true love sent to me:
Twelve drummers drumming
Eleven pipers piping
Ten Lords a’leaping
Nine ladies dancing
Eight maids a’milking
Seven swans a’swimming
Six geese a’laying
Five gold rings
Four calling birds
Three French hens
Two turtle doves
And a partridge in a pear tree.
On the left is the traditional rhyme of the twelve days of Christmas.
Each of the twelve days of Christmas brings another gift.
Here you will find a page that has twelve gifts that link to each of the twelve days
and the gift that her true love sent to the lucky lady.
Maybe the lady wasn’t so lucky after all. The rhyme has been brought up to date in
line with modern Health and Safety rules. This will serve as a warning to all those
ardent lovers out there wanting to impress their true loves.
An alternative Christmas.
