The 12th Day of Christmas

On the 12th day of Christmas my true love Gave to Me, Twelve Drummers drumming.

who hasn't sung this old time song and wondered who in the world would want these gifts for Christmas? Relent K had it Right when they asked "what is a partridge, what is a pear tree, I don't know so please don't ask me. but i can beat these are terrible gifts to get."

It is said that this Christmas song was actually used by the Catholics to keep the key points of their catticism with them when they were not alowed to practice Catholicism.

The 12 Drummers Drumming are the twelve points of the Apostle's Creed:
1. Belief in God the Father
2. Belief in The Son
3. belief in the Holy Spirit
4. Jesus christ was Born of the Virgin Mary
5. Made man
6. Crucified
7. Died
8. He arose on the third day
9. that He sits at the right hand of the Father
10 He will come again.
11. the resurrection of the Dead
12. Life everlasting.

Not a bad gift from our True love God the Father.
