TUNES TUESDAY – (enjoy grooving on a Tuesday with some music, especially an old favorite or something totally new!!)

Today, we’re sitting at right about that many days to Christmas. Here’s a little Christmas music to get you in the mood. This is a cute Indian 12 days of Christmas version.

Folklore:
The “Twelve Days of Christmas” was written to learn about faith:

1 Partridge in a Pear Tree = Jesus (son of the Christian deity)
2 Turtle Doves = The Old and New Testaments, or Adam and Eve, or the two-of-each-kind in Noah’s Ark
3 French Hens = Theological virtues: Faith, Hope and Love/Charity or Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
4 Calling Birds = the 4 Gospels and/or the 4 Evangelists
5 Golden Rings = The first 5 Books of the Old Testament (Pentateuch), or the 5 decades of the rosary, or the 5 obligatory sacraments
6 Geese A-laying = the 6 days of creation
7 Swans A-swimming = the 7 gifts of the Holy Spirit, the 7 sacraments, the seventh day (sabbath)
8 Maids A-milking = the 8 beatitudes i.e. the “blessed are” recitations
9 Ladies Dancing = the 9 Fruits of the Holy Spirit
10 Lords A-leaping = the 10 commandments
11 Pipers Piping = the 11 faithful apostles
12 Drummers Drumming = the 12 points of doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed, the 12 tribes of Israel

Laugh, learn and liven up your taste buds!
