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!

    Beth – when do they anticipate that you’ll be kickin’ up your heels? Will it be in time for Christmas, or some time into the New Year?

  2. Funny but I’m schedule to go see Chuck Berry on New Year’s Day. It’s called Winter Dance. I won’t be dancing but I will be seat dancing!
