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 ninth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me: Nine Ladies Dancing
This has been given the symbolism of:
Nine fruits of the Spirit
(love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control; Galatians 5:22, NRSV)
Stayed tuned for the next episode where we’ll look at the Tenth Day of Christmas.
