12 Days of Christmass GIVEAWAY Bash, Day 11!

Wow! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! This end of the year giveaway bash is going by so quickly! I hope everyone is enjoying it.

On the eleventh day of Christmas,
My true love sent to me
Eleven pipers piping,

Ten lords a-leaping,
Nine ladies dancing,

Eight maids a-milking,
Seven swans a-swimming,
Six geese a-laying,
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, the nine ladies dancing are the nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the ten lords a-leaping represent the ten commandments.

For the eleven pipers piping, they stand for the eleven faithful Diciples. Simon Peter, Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Thomas, James bar Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas bar James. Because of Judas Iscariot's betrayal, he is not included as a disciple. So, therefore, these eleven pipers piping are the remaining apostles who remained true to Jesus.
