The 12 Days of Christmas

The 12 Days of Christmas
  • Written in England in the 16th century when
    Catholics couldnt practice their faith.
  • When people would sing it, they were professing
    their faith, but those in charge wouldnt know
    that and then they could not be punished. It was
    a secretive and symbolic song.
  • Teaches the truths of the faith in its hidden
    meaning.

    Christmas until the Epiphany, which is when the
    three Wise Men came to worship Jesus.

chicks, but you would not have it so.
