“On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me...” Anyone who has sung this song knows how momentous it is to reach the twelfth day! The final ornament of our Twelve Days of Christmas set showcases the exquisitely detailed Drummer.
In Christian tradition, the 12 Days of Christmas may represent the 12 days between Christ’s birth and the arrival of the Wisemen on January 6th (also known as the Epiphany). Many people like to equate each of the 12 day’s lyrics with an element of Christianity, in which case the 12th day represents the twelve points of doctrine in the Apostle’s Creed. Of course, for many, the song’s lyrics are simply a part of their childhood, a fun and nostalgic tradition that makes for many laughs with children. Whatever the song means to you, we hope our ornament collection brings you joy and meaning during your holiday.
The center of this pewter ornament swivels up to 90 degrees, so you can add variety and dimension to your collection as it hangs in your tree.
It’s easy to collect all 12, since each one is part of our special Buy 6 Ornaments, Get the 7th free!
Every ornament we sell is made by hand in our Middlebury, Vermont workshop. Each one comes packaged in a flannel pouch and a gift box.
