Apparently, well according to Wikipedia, so it must be right, the English Christmas Carol the 12 Days of Christmas was first published in England in 1780. This was a leap year, there was a hurricane in Barbados (something Mirka is familiar with), the American Revolutionary War, riots in London and Elizabeth Fry was born. It’s also the date of one of the embroidery samplers that I am researching at work. For a song to be going 230 years must be a sign of quality and of endurance, and that’s what you’ll need whilst hunting out a gift for your loved one.
- On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me…
- A Partridge in a Pear Tree.
I take this as task one, now you might not want to give your true love a partridge in a pear tree this Christmas. Although technically, it’s possible and it isn’t such a bad idea. In fact, I think that my husband would in fact, quite like a partridge and a pear tree, both providing things he loves to eat. However, I think it might be better to head on over to Next where you can buy all sorts of things. I think my hubby would like one of these Ipod docks. I quite like these boots for myself.
Anyway, in case you didn’t know there is a little blogger competition whereby the blogger who gets the most click through to the Next site gets some lovely vouchers. I really want these boots, so please chaps, indulge me in this; Click through and help me win!
