12 Days of Christmas (Day 7)

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 seventh day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Seven Swans A-swimming

This has been given the symbolism of:

Seven sacraments

(though some Christian denominations have only two)


Seven gifts of the Holy Spirit

(wisdom, understanding, counsel, might/fortitude, knowledge, fear of the Lord, and piety; from Isaiah 11:2-3, although piety is not mentioned specifically)

Stayed tuned for the next episode where we’ll look at the Eighth Day of Christmas
