 12 days of Christmas

The 12 days of Christmas is a popular Christmas carol, which details a series of increasingly extravagant gifts, to be given on each day of the twelve days of Christmas by ‘my true lover’. The song was first published in England in 1780 and the English scholar James O. Halliwell is believed to be the earliest performer of the song. The 12 days of Christmas falls between December 25th and January 6th, where grand celebrations take place on each day.

The 12 days of Christmas ornaments

The 12 days of Christmas ornaments that are used for decorating the Christmas tree are based on the gifts mentioned in the popular Christmas carol by the same name. The twelve ornaments include a partridge in a pear tree, two turtle doves, three French hens, four calling birds, five golden rings, six laying geese, seven swimming swans, eight milking maids, nine dancing ladies, ten leaping lords, eleven piping pipers and twelve drumming drummers. All these ornaments when put on the Christmas tree give out a pleasant view.

The 12 days of Christmas words

The words of the carol beautifully depict the various gifts given by ‘my true love’ over twelve days of Christmas. The beginning and counting of the Twelve Days is not explained properly, it is said to be related to differences in calendars, in customs of the church, and ways for observing these days in various culture across the world. Just as the song, the 12 days of Christmas video is very popular as well.

On the first day of Christmas,    
my true love sent to me    
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the third day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fourth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the fifth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the sixth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the seventh day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the eighth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the ninth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Nine ladies dancing,

Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

my true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve drummers drumming,
Eleven pipers piping,
Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree!
