The First Day of Christmas

Dear Friend,

The Twelve Days of Christmas are the twelve days between Christmas Day, Dec. 25th, the birth of Jesus, and the Epiphany, Jan. 6th (epiphany being the Greek word for manifestation).

“The Twelve Days of Christmas” song has its origins in spiritual symbolism-and with a serious purpose.

Each element is a code word for a religious truth.

All the gifts sent on the subsequent days of Christmas were gifts disguised in the words of the song that come to all who believe in the love and truth of God.

The song’s gifts are hidden meanings to the teachings of faith and belief.  The “true love” mentioned in the song doesn’t refer to an earthly suitor, it refers to God. The “me” who receives the presents refers to everyone who believes.

“On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me; a partridge in a pear tree.” The partridge in a pear tree is Jesus Christ, the Son of God, whose birthday we celebrate on December 25. In the song, Christ is symbolically presented as a mother partridge – the protector to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings; representing love and protection of the believer.

Today, take a moment to remember how truly loved by God you are.  And to receive all the wonderful gifts that await you. I will be sending you an email everyday to highlight these amazing gifts. Feel free to forward them along; to share them with family and friends. If you received this as a forwarded message; just go to – sign up for G-Notes and you will receive the remaining 12 Days.  On the last day, I will forward the entire twelve days. Enjoy! And may you have all the gifts of this amazing Christmas season.

God Bless,
