the 12 days of christmas countdown

This is the 12 days of Christmas countdown!

When I first set out to create this series I had just thought that the Twelve Days of Christmas was a silly nonsensical Christmas Carol. But as I started to do some more research it became obvious that things aren’t always what they seem. It’s easy to miss the meaning if you don’t take the time to stop and really listen.

Modern folklore claims that when you sing The Twelve Days of Christmas you are actually reciting an ancient secret catechims loaded with symbolic meaning to help catholic children learn their faith without risk of being persecuted or charged of witchcraft in 8th Century England. 

Isn’t that totally fascinating!! I thought it was :) So with that tidbit of information I’m going to go ahead kickoff the countdown!!
