On the 12th Day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…

12 drummers drumming

represents: the Apostles Creed


  • The version most people sing today comes from English composer Frederic Austin. His version of the song and the melody became popular in 1909
  • on the Twelfth Night, during medieval times, it was common practice to reverse roles – rich/poor; lord/servant; etc.
  • The 12 Days of Christmas made an appearance in The Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
  • today, all the gifts would cost $41,205.58

As I stated earlier, in many of the searches I made for The 12 Days of Christmas, they stated that Catholics were forbidden to worship during the 12th Century (1100-1199). My schooling and learning didn’t agree with what they were saying. It was my understanding that Catholics ruled, so much that they even controlled the kings, queens, etc. Watching movies, tv shows…it didn’t add up. If the Catholics weren’t allowed to worship, why are there so many Cathedrals in Europe? Why did they forbid translating the Bible into a native tongue? Or, for that matter, to be read? So I looked it up. I was right. It was the Catholics that controlled just about everything! Church History by Century 11th Century
