On every day of Christmas, embrace tradition and faith | Faithful Living

I certainly don’t possess a strong singing voice, but “The Twelve Days of Christmas” is one song I can sing with abandon. It’s one of my favorites, in fact, and there are some fun and easy family activities that work nicely to bring life and deeper understanding of the lyrics.
On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me a partridge in a pear tree. The pear tree is said to symbolize the cross and the partridge Christ because a mother partridge will risk her life to save her offspring by luring predators away from her nest. I’ve yet to see a partridge at the local grocery store, but pears are abundant. Try combining your favorite cheeses with sliced pears, nuts, fresh bread and spiced tea for a weekend lunch.
