The Ninth Day of Christmas

Monday, January 2, 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 ninth day of Christmas my true love gave to me . . . nine ladies dancing. These nine dancers were really the gifts known as the fruit of the Spirit. The fruits are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control."

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