About The Twelve Days of Christmas. The Twelve Days of Christmas is an English Christmas carol that enumerates each day by the gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas.

In most Western ecclesiastical traditions, "Christmas Day" is considered the "First Day of Christmas" and the Twelve Days are 25 December – 5 January, inclusive. For many Christian denominations-for example, the Anglican Communion and Lutheran Church-the Twelve Days are identical to Christmastide, but for others, .

Kate Rusby’s Christmas albums have become a sort of new seasonal tradition, as reliable an indicator of the encroaching Yuletide as mince pies, fake snow and telly adverts shoe-horning modern gifts into The Twelve Days Of Christmas.

The 12 Days have been celebrated in Europe since before the middle ages and were a time of celebration. Day 2 (26th December also known as Boxing Day): St Stephen’s Day. He was the first Christian martyr (someone who dies for their faith). It's also the day when the Christmas Carol 'Good King Wenceslas' takes place. Day 3 (27th December): St John the Apostle (One of Jesus's Disciples and friends). He was Archbishop of Canterbury in the 12th century and was murdered on 29th December 1170 for challenging the King’s authority over the Church. Day 6 (30th December): St Egwin of Worcester. Day 7 (31st December): New Year's Eve (known as Hogmanay in Scotland).

The Twelve Days of Christmas (song). Redirected from Twelve Days of Christmas (song)). The Twelve Days of Christmas" (Roud 68) is an English Christmas carol that enumerates in the manner of a cumulative song a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas (the twelve days that make up the Christmas season, starting with Christmas Day). The song, published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin

This song was first published in England in 1780. It has different tunes. The best-known tune comes from an arrangement of a folk melody by English composer Frederic Austin in 1909. On the first day of Christmas, my true love sent to me A partridge in a pear tree.

Where did the 12 days of Christmas come from? Why are there 12 days in the Christmas season? . You're all familiar with the Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" I think. To most it's a delightful nonsense rhyme set to music. But it had a quite serious purpose when it was written. It is a good deal more than just a repetitious melody with pretty phrases and a list of strange gifts. Catholics in England during the period 1558 to 1829, when Parliament finally emancipated Catholics in England, were prohibited from ANY practice of their faith by law - private OR public. It was a crime to BE a Catholic.
