For most people this is Day 4 of 12 Days of Advent as in SL Advent does start on Dec 12th ~ yet what came to my mind today was the song just finished hearing “Twelve Days of Christmas” and I was thinking till just a moment ago that was referring to the days before yet actually it isn’t…as the first day of Christmas “A Partridge in a Pear Tree” is the starting celebration of the birth of Jesus on December 25th ending on January 5th…seems way back when Catholicism was banned in England “The carol, it is said, was a catechism song for Catholics to learn “the tenets of their faith,” as they could not openly practice in Anglican society” is this true or not  been truly substantiated yet below is the meaning of each day and these 12 days are known as “The Epiphany” ~ some also believe the 12 days is the amount of time it took for the 3 Wise Men to travel to Bethlehem, some it is known as “Twelvetide” ~ either way for most Christians it truly is a celebration ~ this usually is not my thing to discuss religion as my Gram a very wise women said there are 2 things never to be discussed in mixed company is “politics & religion” as I try to keep my blog away from those 2 subjects yet its the season that truly is a religious celebration one that whether you believe or not please just take time to let others know you care ♥

Here are the verses of the song, along with their supposed symbolism [source:]:
