1st – 12 Days of Christmas

1st - 12 Days of Christmas

“On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a partridge in a pear tree.” What do those lyrics mean? It represents Jesus, the son of God. Rumor has it that the 12 days of Christmas song was used by worshipers when Christians were being punished for their religion as a way to discreetly pass on the message of Christianity.

For religious reasons people celebrate the 12 days of Christmas. What is the 12 days of Christmas? The twelve days starting with Christmas and ending on January 7th that celebrate Jesus Christ. The theory is that each of the gifts symbolize a different aspect of the Christians religion with the partridge in the pear tree representing Jesus. Day 1 is all about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Not everyone believes in Jesus but, that is the main purpose of Christmas.
