The 12 Days of Christmas begins on December 25th and ends on January 5th. The earliest version of song appeared in 1780 in a children’s book and it is thought to be French in origin. Some say it was a game in which players’ would test their memories by singing the song. If they couldn’t remember the words, they would have to give up something, like a piece of candy, etc.
