The Birds Of The Twelve Days Of Christmas
The Twelve Days Of Christmas is an English Christmas carol that was originally published in a book called Mirth Without Mischief in about 1780. However, the song is believed to be much older than the printed version and there are at least 3 French versions known to exist. Some of the items mentioned in the carol indicate a French origin too. For example, the partridge was not introduced to England until the late 1770s.
