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 sixth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Six Geese A-laying
This has been given the symbolism of:
Six days of creation
(on the seventh day, God rested)
Stayed tuned for the next episode where we’ll look at the Seventh Day of Christmas.
