If you’re a purist, today is the 2nd day of Christmas. This means, of course, that your true love should be on the way at some point today with two turtle doves — and possibly a second partridge in a pear tree, depending on how one interprets the song.
There’s a theory out there in the internets that this is a coded primer on theology. There are also multiple places on said internets that dispute this theory and call it hogwash. I’m not going to dive into the debate, but I will say I enjoy the idea behind using it as a mnemonic device for the tenents of faith. (Day two would, under this theory, be the Old and New Testaments.) SO, even if this is made up for the purposes of memeing, it’s still fun.
And, in high school choir, we always had fun singing “The 12 Days After Christmas”, wherein a fed up loved one figures out how to deal with the bird-brained gifts received prior. (That and the PDQ Bach carols were always quite a bit of fun. Particularly “Throw the Yule Log on, Uncle John.”)
Anyway, however you count the days of Christmas and for however long you keep up your decorations, I hope you had a lovely day yesterday full of family and a time celebrating the birth of our Savior.
