12 Days of Christmas

I had wanted to do more for you all, but I've been driving around the state visiting friends. Maybe one of you can help out:

What are the 12 days of Christmas and is the story about it true?

I've heard that the story about them being a "secret catechesis" is an urban legend and false. I mean, memorizing all twelve verses is hard enough without having to learn another twelve to explain the first twelve... then you have to learn what the real twelve even mean. There has got to be a better way to catechize than that!

12 Days of Christmas is simply a song. The Liturgical calendar is where its at... We celebrate Christmas for a season, beginning on December 25th until the Baptism of the Lord, which falls on Monday, January 8th this year. So, that gives us 15 days of Christmas! How about that. By the way... Merry Christmas, Jen!
