…on the first day of christmas

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a Partridge in a Pear Tree!

 symbolism // The Partridge is thought to represent the son of God and savior to the Christian world. A mother partridge will protect her nest by pretending to be injured to decoy a predator away from her chicks. She will even be willing to die for them. Most of the year partridges are found in small flocks but they begin to “pair” up in the winter. Two becoming one. This oneness begotten from the pairing of many is thought to represent supreme goodness.
