The Eleventh Day of Christmas

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

Ace Collins's book, Stories Behind the Great Traditions of Christmashas had a great impact on me this season. His chapter on The Twelve Days of Christmas fascinated me so much, that I want to share it here, for the twelve days, December 25th - January 5th.


"On the eleventh day of Christmas my true love gave to me . . . eleven pipers piping. This is almost a trick question, as most think of the disciples in terms of a dozen. But when Judas betrayed Jesus and committed suicide, there were only eleven men who carried out the gospel message."

(Taken from Chapter 24, The Twelve Days of Christmas, Stories Behind the Great Traditions of Christmas)
