Song of the Week

So maybe this will begin a series of Christmas Songs of the Week?

This is a FABULOUS rocker from Reliant K. Meka and I were jamming out to it in the wagon tonight. She started head banging unsolicited.

"According to the 23rd annual survey, the cost of “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is $19,507 in 2007, a 3.1 percent increase over last year."

And there is some symbolism from the song as well.

1 True Love refers to God
2 Turtle Doves refers to the Old and New Testaments
3 French Hens refers to Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues
4 Calling Birds refers to the Four Gospels and/or the Four Evangelists
5 Golden Rings refers to the first Five Books of the Old Testament, the "Pentateuch", which gives the history of man's fall from grace.
6 Geese A-laying refers to the six days of creation
7 Swans A-swimming refers to the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the seven sacraments
8 Maids A-milking refers to the eight beatitudes
9 Ladies Dancing refers to the nine Fruits of the Holy Spirit
10 Lords A-leaping refers to the ten commandments
11 Pipers Piping refers to the eleven faithful apostles
12 Drummers Drumming refers to the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle's Creed

Ultimately I agree with Reliant K: "What's a partridge? What's a pear tree? I don't know so please don't ask me. But I can guess those are terrible gifts to get."


  1. Can't I just have the cash equivalent?
