12 Days of Christmas

My New Year starts on the  6th January.

(The day I left full time teaching and started the next part of my journey.)

The song 12 Days of Christmas', takes you to the 6th January.

It is Epiphany and the coming of the Kings.

The time for decorations to be down and away until next year

So here are my 12 days

(Warning... this song goes on and on! You will be glad when Christmas is put away, maybe?)

Many years ago i sang the 12 days of Christmas to my dad...

By the 10th day he asked,

"How many more days does christmas have?!"

The song does get repetative and as I posted it as a daily blog it really was a challenge, but I managed to continue to the end!
