    The Twelve Days of Christmas.

    “From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly.

    Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics.

    It has two levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church.

    Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality which the children could remember.

    -The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.

    -Two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.

    -Three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.-

    -The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John.

    -The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of the Old Testament.

    -The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.

    -Seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy Spirit–Prophecy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership, and Mercy.

    -The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.

    -Nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit–Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self Control.

    -The ten lords a-leaping were the ten commandments.

    -The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.

    -The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the Apostles’ Creed.”

    This knowledge was shared with me and I found it interesting and enlightening and now I know how that strange song became a Christmas Carol… and I just found that out at over three score years and then (Overdraft time).

    And May Your Gods Go With You in 2010.

    Merry White Christmas Flighty ~ from the sunny west coast of Canada. That’s what the forecast is for the next few days, so that will be pleasant driving for those who are on their way to their various Christmas dinners. I picked up a 24 lb. farm turkey today ~ one of the smaller ones! That will be stuffed and popped into the oven tomorrow. Let the feasting begin! Anyway, with my three sons around, it will be well taken care of!

    PS I could do with some of your home grown onions for the stuffing! 😉

    Keep warm and toasty!

    • Flighty says:

      Glo thanks but it won’t be a white one here as it rained yesterday and washed it all away!
      I’m sure that your three growing lads will make short work of that ‘small’ turkey!
      I’m down to a handful of onions now which will just see out the year!
      Thanks again, I will indeed! xx

      Lady drid thanks I’m glad that you like it!
      The snowflakes are a WordPress extra that bloggers here can have just for a few weeks over the festive period. Hugs xx

    From a snow-covered West of Scotland, belated good wishes for 2010, and the re-opening of the wonderful book of gardening and wildlife you produce daily!

    • Flighty says:

      Harry thanks, and to you too! Almost daily, well a couple of times a week.
      At the moment the only gardening I’m doing is from the armchair reading books and seed catalogues. Thankfully there’s plenty of wildlife activity to entertain me.
