12 Days of Christmas GIVEAWAY Bash, Day 2!

Here we are, on the 2nd day! This is so much fun!

In the song, 12 Days of Christmas, we are looking at each verse and explaining what each item named represents! So for today, we are looking at the second verse…

On the second day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Two turtledoves,
And a partridge in a pear tree
As we have already discussed, we are the ones singing it, telling what our true love – God – gave to us. The partridge in a pear tree represented Christ.

For the second verse, the two turtle doves represent the Old and New Testament, which together make up the Word God gave to us to teach us how to live our lives in a way that pleases him!

P.S. I'm curious...was the song "The Twelve Days of Christmas" originally written as a song with Christian themes? Or did someone look at it later and interpret the symbolism? Just curious! :) Thanks for sharing about it on here, in either case!

I never really cared for the 12 Days of Christmas song, but after reading what it represents, I'm looking at it a whole new way!

Thanks to everyone who entered the giveaway! This giveaway is now closed - check back on the 26th to find out who the winners are!

Amber, in answer to your question, as far as I know, the song was intended for Christmas. But the 'countdown' was originally began on Christmas day and headed into the new year, ending on the 5th of January. This was beleived to be the day of Epiphany - when the wise men came to Jesus. Now, this is just what I learned from the internet when searching for the meaning behind the song, so may be faulty - but that was usually the explanation for it! :-)
