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

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

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