Thread Name: Twelve Days of Christmas-for teaching catechism?
Subject: RE: Twelve Days of Christmas
Regarding the catechism myth, the old catechism of the Council of Trent has twelve articles to its creed, but that was put out in 1570. The "Twelve Days of Christmas" is 18th c., long after there was any need for code.
