That was really cute!  I e-mailed it to all my friends with puppies! 

Speaking of the 12 Days of Christmas, I received this e-mail last Christmas and I don't know if the story behind it is true, but it is interesting non the less...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Did you know this one?

The one Christmas Carol that has always baffled me. What in the world do
leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans, and especially the partridge
who won't come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to
practice their faith openly.  Someone during that era wrote this carol as
a
catechism song for young Catholics. It has two levels of meaning: the
surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their
church.
Each element in the carol has a code word for a religious reality, which
the
children could remember.

The partridge in a pear tree was Jesus Christ.
The two turtle doves were the Old and New Testaments.
The three French hens stood for faith, hope and love.
The four calling birds were the four gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke &
John.
The five golden rings recalled the Torah or Law, the first five books of
the
Old Testament.
The six geese a-laying stood for the six days of creation.
The seven swans a-swimming represented the sevenfold gifts of the Holy
Spirit-Prophesy, Serving, Teaching, Exhortation, Contribution, Leadership,
and Mercy.
The eight maids a-milking were the eight beatitudes.
The nine ladies dancing were the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit-Love, Joy,
Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and
Self-Control.
The ten lords a-leaping were the Ten Commandments.
The eleven pipers piping stood for the eleven faithful disciples.
The twelve drummers drumming symbolized the twelve points of belief in the
Apostles' Creed.

So there is your history for today.

I did a version of that for a Christmas Children's sermon last year and the adults were SO impressed!!! There were SO many that came up to me after the service and said they had NEVER heard any of that...sometimes I think the adults listen to the Children's sermon better than the kids do...
