We have a tradition going back just a few years where we celebrate the twelve days of Christmas in a fun family orientated way. this is not to take away from the faith filledcelebrations that also occur over this time period, nor is it to explain the possible significance of these 12 days to those of our faith in England of old, it is simply to extend the joy we feel in a way that is significant for the younger members of our family.God invented laughter and I'm sure there was a great deal of it in the Holy family as the Christ child grew.
On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me
A partridge in a pear tree.
Sorry but the partridge flew off to find his family…
But he left behind his picture and “somethings” fruity inside!
