my true love gave to me a...
for Christmas time in Reds and Greens"
During "The 12 days of Christmas"
I will be posting each day a different card.
I have published these cards at the language blogs for Memory Box.
But I did not had the chance to share them here in my blog due to my injury...
since I am not crafting much lately
I decided to post them during this special time of the 12 days of Christmas....
so you will find some from Thanksgiving and Christmas cards mixed...
Do you know that today it is actually what it is known as the 1st day of Christmas?
it is not the 1st of December as some people may think...
It is a festive Christian season to celebrate the nativity of Jesus starting after Christmas Day, December 26th until January 6!
as for the song..."The Twelve Days of Christmas is an English Christmas carol that enumerates in the manner of a cumulative song a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. The song, published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin. According to Catholics, this song was written as a catechism song for young Catholics in the days when it was illegal to practice or to teach the faith. It contains hidden meanings intended to help children remember lessons of faith. There appears to be no conclusive historical evidence to prove this origin. Nevertheless the traditional association between the gifts mentioned in the song and various spiritual gifts is a fun way to turn a seemingly secular Christmas carol into a valuable catechism tool."
