Twelve whatever doing whatever....


We have a winner for the twelfth day of Christmas... and not without some merry ole' yuletide confusion.

The contest was to find an author or title in "Twelve Lords a-Leaping" which sounds suspiciously like the previous "Ten Lords a-Leaping..."

The lyrics site I consulted had those fellows leaping on the twelfth day.

But I think it reflects what we all knew -- by the time you get to the end of this song you don't really care why they're doing whatever they do on what day. I lost interest when I was 12. Or maybe it was 10. While I was leaping or drumming or....

ANYHOW... the winner of Shout of the Bridegroom is Carmen Sandman. Please email us your snail mail address, and congratulations, Carmen!

Ha! That's funny! I didn't even notice. You're so right. By the end, no one even notices. Hey, have you ever heard Straight No Chaser's version? It's on Youtube--definitely worth it. They change it up and it's hilarious!

That's too funny. I'm going to check out Kristen's suggestion on youtube.

Wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas!
And on this Christmas Eve look to the only source of true hope, peace, and salvation! Praying!
Matthew 1:20-23 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
