The 12 Days Of Christmas are the twelve days between Christmas Day and the Epiphany (January 6th), the day Christians celebrate the arrival of the Magi (Wise Men) and the revelation of Christ as the light of the world.
The Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" may sound silly and contrived to many of us. However, it actually had its origins in religious symbolism and with a serious purpose.
It dates from a time of religious persecution. The song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas" was written as a kind of secret catechism that one could sing in public without fear of arrest, a learning or memory aid to Christians in fact. This lovely set will make a great project for the holiday. The designs use only one colour. You can use red, black, blue or even gold to create a lovely quilt, wallhanging or a tree-skirt.
Patricia included in the set the meaning of The Twelve Days of Christmas and the lyrics to the Christmas Carol.
The set is available for the 4x4, 5x7 and 6x10 hoops.
