The 12 Days of Christmas

November 19th, 2009 by Classic Charms in Holidays; Share

I know some may say its too early to be singing Christmas Carols, but one of my favorites has to be The 12 days of Christmas.  Each day in this famous Christmas carol represents something from the Bible. Its so easy with the hustle and bustle of the holiday season its so easy to forget the reason we celebrate Christmas each year is actually celebrating the birth of Christ, not Santa and the reindeer and all the presents under the tree.  This is a great Christmas carol with lots of meaning with each verse, and to celebrate this season, we invite you to grab a cup of tea, enjoy our favorite carol and the meaning behind it with the jingle of our 12 Days of Christmas Charm bracelet! True Love refers to God, Turtle Doves refers to the New & Old Testaments, French Hens refers to Faith, Hope & Charity, Calling Birds refers to the Four Gospels, Golden Rings refers to the first Five books of the New Testament, Geese-a-laying refers to the six days of creation, Swans-a-swimming refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the seven sacraments, Maids-a-milking refers to the eight beatitudes, ladies dancing refers to the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit, Lords-a-leaping refers to the ten commandments, Pipers Piping refers to the eleven faithful apostles, and drummers drumming refers to the twelve points of doctrine in the apostle’s creed.
