The Birds Of The Twelve Days Of Christmas


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.
