|Nathan||12 days of Christmas 'Code' song??? qua Catechism (10)||RE: 112 days of Christmas||01 Apr 99|
Not sure how it relates, but my French teacher in college told us that "A partridge in a pear tree" came from the affectation of the English showing off their breeding by repeating English phrases in French. "Una perdre" (not sure of spelling)is French for "One partridge", so the phrase "A partridge, una perdre" was corrupted into "A partridge in a pear tree."
