Have you ever wondered about THE TWELVE DAYS OF CHRISTMAS Carol?

What in the world do leaping lords, French hens, swimming swans and especially the partridge who won't come out of the pear tree have to do with Christmas?

From 1558 until 1829, Roman Catholics in England were not permitted to practice their faith openly. Someone during that era wrote this carol as a catechism song for young Catholics. It has 2 levels of meaning: the surface meaning plus a hidden meaning known only to members of their church. Each element in the carol has a code word for a religous reality, which the children could remember.
