12 Days Of Christmas GIVEAWAY Bash - Day 10!!

Here we are, on day 10 already!
In the well-known 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 tenth verse…

On the tenth day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
nine ladies dancing,
Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
Five golden rings,
Four calling birds,
Three French hens,
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, the two turtledoves represented the Old and New Testaments, the three French hens represent the theological virtues, and the four calling birds symbolize the four gospels, and the five golden rings are the first five books in the Old Testament (the histories), the six geese a-laying are the 6 days of creation, the seven swans a-swimming are the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit, the eight maids a-milking are the Beatitudes, and the nine ladies dancing are the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit!

The ten lords a-leaping stand for the 10 commandments – God’s holy law given to Moses for Israel: God’s chosen people, and for all man kind!
