…on the twelfth day of christmas

On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me twelve Drummers Drumming.

 symbolism // The Twelve Drummers and the final verse of the song refers to the doctrine of the Apostle’s Creed:  belief in God the Father almighty, belief in Jesus Christ his only Son – our Lord, that Jesus was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, that He suffered under Pontius Pilate, and was crucified, died and was buried, then he descended into hell, that he rose again the third day, that he ascended into heaven, that he is seated at the right hand of the Father, that he is to come to judge the living and the dead, belief in the Holy Ghost, belief in the holy Catholic Church and the communion of saints, belief in the remission of sins, and belief in the resurrection of the flesh and life eternal. It can be said that by using the image of the drummers drumming relates to the reiteration of this creed on a regular basis as a Catholic to an almost musical rhythm.

Merry Christmas!!!
