On the 12th day of Christmas my true love gave to me...
Twelve Drummers Drumming
The twelve points of doctrine in the Apostles' Creed: 1) I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth. 2) I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord. 3) He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. 4) He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried. He descended into hell [the grave]. 5) On the third day he rose again. He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. 6) He will come again to judge the living and the dead. 7) I believe in the Holy Spirit, 8) the holy catholic Church, 9) the communion of saints, 10) the forgiveness of sins, 11) the resurrection of the body, 12) and life everlasting.
Twelve drummers drumming each on their own drum.
That's the end of the song - Wasn't it fun?
Here is your drum with goodies as full as can be.
It's for wishing Merry Christmas to you from me!
Today is known as the Twelfth Night and is considered the end of the Christmas season. The Twelfth Night was a time for feasting in England in centuries past. Some cultures, like the French and Spanish, celebrate the Feast of the Epiphany with a king's cake, a coffee cake with purple, green and yellow icing to commemorate the visit by the magi to the Christ child.
I do hope you’ve enjoyed all my tips and info that began way back in November with the 1st Sunday of Advent and ends now with the TWELFTH Day of Christmas. I tried to make the days more meaningful for you and for myself too.
Time has a way of slipping by before we know it and I feel it is so important to make the most of each day as we have it and to live every day as the best day of our lives and to be thankful for all the blessings in them.
Tomorrow and the for the next year I’ll be celebrating in a different way each new day. The ordinary days in life are some of the very best there is. The year ahead will bring more holidays and holy days too, but in the ordinary days there are many blessings too.
