On the second day of Christmas my true love gave to me two Turtle Doves.
symbolism // The two Turtle Doves have symbolism in religious history as well as spiritual representation. The two turtle doves are thought to represent the Old and New Testaments. It is mentioned in the New Testament that two turtle doves are sacrificed for the Birth of Jesus, symbolic of the sacrifice Christ made by giving his life as payment for the sins of man, ultimately making them a sign of devoted love. Spiritually they are also said to signify the idea of duality, as doves are known to have mournful voices, the two turtle doves can represent love and loss.
