Countdown to Christmas 1

On the first day of Christmas...

Yes, I know, the first day of Christmas is really December 25th. Twelfth night heralds Epiphany (with pipes, evidently). It's also the date decorations came down when I was growing up and a play attributed to Shakespeare. Regardless...

On the first day of Christmas
My true love gave to me
A partridge in a pear tree.

You might think I made a great shot, but I was aiming for my ex.

On a related theme, I have a story appearing on Me and Reading called Special for the Season.


  1. hahaha very good, Alison. I must do something Christmasy with one of my blogs. On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to turtleneck...did you hear the Canadian version? Two rubber boots...three French toast...four Molson beer...hahahaha

  2. Kenna, you waylaid me for a half hour going from Bob and Doug's version of 12 Days of Christmas to Canadian Slanguage and then regional dialects in Canada. One thing kept leading to another.
