Fact or Fiction....this is nice does not matter if it is true or not.
The song dates from a time of religious persecution.  The song the Twelve Days of Christmas was written as a kind of secret catechism that people could sing in public without fear of arrest or as a learning or memory aid to Christians.
The song can be taken on two levels, the surface meaning or the hidden meaning.  Each element is a code word for a religious truth.
1. The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus.
2. The two turtle doves are the Old and New Testaments.
3. Three French hens stand for faith, hope and love.
4. The four calling birds are the four Gospels.
5. The five gold rings recall the Hebrew Torah or the first 5 books of the Old Testament.
6. The six geese a laying stand for the six days of creation.
7. The seven swans a swimming represent the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit.
8. The eight maids a milking are the eight Beatitudes.
9. Nine ladies dancing are the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit.
10. The ten lord a leaping are the Ten Commandments.
11. The eleven pipers piping represent the eleven faithful Apostles.
12. Twelve drummers drumming symbolize the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles Creed.

Honestly not all Christmas sweaters are ugly and not all vacation sweaters seem like a Bedazzle threw informed them therefore there’s progressing and being created away there location. So what makes an unpleasant vacation sweater anyway? Typically there is some over the highest use of shiny thread material concerned perhaps many big buttons and there’s positively plenty of red and inexperienced concerned. Of course ugly isn’t a demand any longer there are many vacation sweaters that are simply vacationing sweaters however may well be observed as ugly Christmas sweater simply because it’s become type of catch up with all phrase that covers any sweater with a vacation theme to that.

So what are some places wherever you’ll be able to obtain Christmas sweaters luckily the recognition of the trend has created it easier than ever to search out sweaters online throughout the vacation season. Several the most effective choices are: many stores that focus on producing and commercialism this stuff online, online auction sites similar eBay yours neighborhood thrift store major shops tend to hold a few Christmas sweaters styles annually.
