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 fifth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Five Golden Rings
This has been given the symbolism of:
First five books of the Bible
Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy (known as; the Pentateuch)
Stayed tuned for the next episode where we’ll look at the Sixth Day of Christmas.
