Selected Works from "The Twelve Days of Christmas"

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

On the second day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Two turtle doves,
And a partridge in a pear tree.

1. Partridge Love Necklace by Leviticus Jewelry, $40
2. Kissing Dove Sterling Earrings, $44.99
3. Seeka Dove Necklace, $64

Lyrics from Carols.Org

The song is actually a Christian parable, and each verse speaks of something a tad more religious than what is sung. I had no idea, for instance, that the first three days actually meant:
1. True Love refers to God
2. Turtle Doves refers to the Old and New Testaments
3. French Hens refers to Faith, Hope and Charity, the Theological Virtues

Huh. Anyhow, I'll be counting down the 12 days through jewelry this week as Christmas approaches.
Oh, and pics of my tree tomorrow, which we bought in the bitter cold on Saturday night, and decorated in the cozy warmth of a Sunday afternoon whilst watching every episode, special feature and documentary on The Office DVD's, season 1, 2, and the holiday special. I am speaking of the UK office, which is perhaps my favorite show of all time. I can't get down with the US office; I just don't see the funny.

For you UK office fans: how much do you love the scene where Gareth opens his office drawer to find his stapler inside of molded jell-o? Sigh. Oh, Tim.

WHAT?! I'm very disappointed by all this symbolism. I was hoping to receive three fancy chickens!
