Every year it is tradition in my house to write our own lyrics to the song “12 Days of Christmas”. We all sit down together and write furiously, and then once we are all finished, we sing it to the group, although we only sing the final section, from 12 days to 1, otherwise we would be there for hours!
It is really interesting to see what everyone has written down, and I have kept them all safe for future generations. Some years people have wished for all art supplies, or for all gaming gear or music gear, other times it has been a real mixed bag.
Here is my author version of “12 Days of Christmas”.
