Thread Name: Twelve Days of Christmas-for teaching catechism?
Subject: RE: Twelve Days of Christmas
I dunno about the nature of the gifts, but I think that the number of gifts is interesting: The total (12 days times 1 partridge plus 11 days times 2 French hens etc. ) totals 364. The way it was explained to me, that's one gift for each day of the year. Except for Christmas, when we received the greatest gift of all.
