A very kind friend pointed out to me that the twelve days of Christmas actually start on the 25th of December and run until Epiphany. This meant that I learned something new. To read more about the twelve days of Christmas, visit http://www.crivoice.org/cy12days.html.
This being said, we will simply use the themes in the song to countdown to Christmas on this blog. Thus...
"On the second day of Christmas,
my true love gave to me
two turtle doves and
a partridge in a pear tree."
Turtle doves are birds and you can read about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turtle_Dove
What are two of your favorite birds?
The first favorite bird I would like to share with you is the owl (which, coincidentally, are featured in Night's Final Hour as "the roosters of the night.") I was excited to find small owl ornaments at Target this year!
My second favorite bird would be the red bird. I absolutely adore the vibrance of their color!
