Is there a PDF to download these cute tags that you made? Thank you for this great idea. I love that it's Christ-centered rather than 10 lords a leaping, etc. There is a turkey thing that is on the PDF instead. Do you mind sending me the PDF. I am repeating Celeste. There is a 15 page turkey themed download when I hit the button. I'd love to have a copy of these tags jhtch msn.
12 Days of Christ-mas
I love the idea, but am getting a Turkey printable when I click on the "Download here". Would you please send me the PDF? Thanks so much! I get the same turkey download. I need to get this off to my son,is here another pdf?
I would love to do this too! If you can, send me the pdf! I love this idea, it's just what I was looking for, thank you! I just have one question - how did you determine what Christ did on each day? Was it just your personal choice, or is there some scriptural significance to the order that I have never heard of before? I do the 12 days of Christmas for my kids they are now teenagers - I am using this one this year.
For the 12th day I am giving them each a Testimony Journal with my testimony written in the front. So far they have done the suggested act of Christ that goes with each day. Thank you for a great idea! This is by far the best "12 Days of Christmas"! Thanks for sharing. I am Mariam,from what I can read. It has been sad news and scam to everyone about Voodoo casters or so.

This is my first time i visit here. I found so many interesting stuff in your blog especially its discussion.
From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I am not the only one having all the enjoyment here! Matthew On the second day of Christmas Jesus Christ was the light of the world. Matthew On the fourth day of Christmas Jesus Christ gave the gift of charity, the pure love of Christ. Mark 7: On the seventh day of Christmas Jesus Christ gave the gift of selflessness.
The Twelve Days of Christmas - What Are They & What Do They Mean?
Mark On the eighth day of Christmas Jesus Christ gave the gift of baptism. John On the tenth day of Christmas Jesus Christ made the lame to walk. Matthew On the eleventh day of Christmas Jesus Christ clothed those in need. Matthew On the twelfth day of Christmas Jesus Christ gave his life for us so we can live with him again. Matthew , 27, I love this! We did this to one of our friends this year. Just FYI, your print in the blog post and the downloadable tags are flip flopped for days 3 and 4.
I almost put the wrong tag on one gift, so it's a good thing I read it before! Also for the deaf day we gave them a book and audio CD of it. Download Here. Posted by Chantel Nate at AM. Nathan and Shanna December 12, at PM. Ana E March 25, at PM.

Bernie December 12, at PM. Laurie December 12, at PM. Each of the "days" represents some aspect of the Christian Faith that was important for children to learn. However, many have questioned the historical accuracy of this origin of the song The Twelve Days of Christmas. While some have tried to debunk this as an "urban myth" out of personal agendas, others have tried to deal with this account of the song's origin in the name of historical accuracy see Snopes on The 12 Days of Christmas.
There is little "hard" evidence available either way. Some church historians affirm this account as basically accurate, while others point out apparent historical and logical discrepancies. The reality is that the "evidence" for both perspectives is mostly in logical deduction and probabilities. Lack of positive evidence does not automatically provide negative evidence. On the other hand, logical deduction and probability do not provide proof either. One internet site devoted to debunking hoaxes and legends says that, "there is no substantive evidence to demonstrate that the song 'The Twelve Days of Christmas' was created or used as a secret means of preserving tenets of the Catholic faith, or that this claim is anything but a fanciful modern day speculation.
The view of the song as a secret catechism is most likely legendary or anecdotal. Without corroboration and in the absence of "substantive evidence," we probably should not take overly rigid positions from either perspective. It is all too easy to turn the song into a crusade for personal opinions.
That would do more to violate the spirit of Christmas than the song is worth. So, for the sake of historical accuracy, we need to acknowledge the likelihood that the song had secular origins.

However, on another level, this should not prevent us from using the song in celebration of Christmas. Many of the symbols of Christianity were not originally religious, including even the present date of Christmas, but were appropriated from contemporary culture by the Christian Faith as vehicles of worship and proclamation.
Perhaps, when all is said and done, historical accuracy, as important as that might be on one level, is not really the point. Perhaps more important is that Christians can celebrate their rich heritage, and God's grace, through one more avenue during the Advent and Christmas seasons. After all, is that not the meaning of Christmas anyway?
