On The First Day of Christmas

     I was thinking about the song The Twelve Days of Christmas and I began wondering how a person would survive as a gift-giver under such stress.  I don’t know about you, but my purse strings would be gravely  strained by having to come up with enough ideas for multiple Christmas gifts.  In fact, with the economy being what it is, my purse already gives off only a very faint sound of Jing, instead of Jingle. 


     Fortunately, as a child, I took this song to heart.  I thought there was some kind of unwritten law that said I had to be prepared in case the need for a dozen gifts should ever arise.  Naturally, my economic situation was pretty much the same then as it has always been, so I very wisely created a full dozen gifts that could comfortably be given without causing undue pain to the pocketbook.  đŸ™‚  Now, don’t you just think I was such a clever child?


     In case you wish to actually give gifts for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas, I will post one idea each day until Christms Eve.  There are more than twelve days until Christmas, so this should help you to have different ideas for different people on your list.  After all, you wouldn’t want to give the same gifts to everyone, now, would you?


     With that in mind, here is the first gift: 

A poem is where you’ll want to start
To give a gift that’s from the heart.

     I do hope that this will help with the love you show this year and many years to come.  See you tomorrow?

  1. Wow, you were thoughtful and creative for a child! Even for an adult. Did you know the 12 days of Christmas actually begins Christmas Day and ends on Epiphany, January 6th? Joany, I am having trouble reading the text that overlaps the puzzle pieces. It's not illegible, just difficult. I'm old, but I thought others may have the same difficulty.

  2. Hi PJ,Thank you for letting me know. Did it help that I enlarged the puzzle pieces and enlarged the print?I really appreciate your help in telling me when the post is hard to read. By the way, you can't be too old. Your posts are those of a very young at heart person. I'm older than you; I'm 4. Neener, neener.Hugs, Yaya
