The Twelve Days of Christmas
Continuing our series of I Didn’t Know That, we take a look at the common symbolism attributed to that famous Christmas song; The Twelve Days of Christmas. Be aware, the song was not written as a mnemonic device to memorize Christian symbolism, but we can still have fun learning.
The third day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Three French Hens
This has been given the symbolism of:
Faith, Hope, and Love/Charity
(Father, Son and Holy Spirit)
Three Gifts of the Magi
(Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh)
Stayed tuned for the next episode where we’ll look at the Fourth Day of Christmas.
