On the First Day of Christmas…

Did you know that the 12 days of Chrismtas start, not end, on Christmas day? In the Christian church, the season preceding Christmas is Advent, and the Christmas season doesn’t start until December 25. After the twelfth day, we observe the feast of the Epiphany, when the magi visited the newborn Jesus.

Today, therefore, is the first day of Christmas. In the spirit of the song, here is a gift for my readers. Yes, there will be gifts for the next 11 days as well.

On the first day of Christmas, the Den Mother gave to me a partridge in a pear tree.
