This is the fifth in an 11 part series on The Twelve Days of Christmas, go here to read part one.
Today I’m going to recap what all six days mean on this halfway point. If you haven’t read the other blogs, I encourage you to do so, I’ve included some interesting Christmas trivia that you may not know.
Also, I do hope I haven’t rambled on too much in this series. It’s just when I start talking about Christ I get so excited that I want to share everything I know. Then things start bubbling out on their own and I tend to over share. For that reason, this has been one of the most exciting blogs I’ve written in a long time.
One more thing, I’ve tried to write in a way that made it easy to share with your kids. Once a homeschool mom–always a homeschool mom.
Here’s what we’ve learned so far:
- Partridge in a Pear Tree—represents Jesus Christ, God’s ONE AND ONLY Son
- Two Turtle Doves—represents the Old and New Testaments
- Three French Hens—represents the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity (Love)
- Four Calling Birds—represents the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John) and/or the four Evangelist
- Five Golden Rings—represent the First Five Books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy), better known as the Pentateuch or Torah
That brings us up to Six Geese A Laying. The symbolism in this made a lot of sense.
Six Geese A Laying–represents the Six Days of Creation
