Everything You Need to Know About The Twelve Days of Christmas

All opinions expressed herein are my own!

There is much debate over when the Twelve Days of Christmas actually begin.  Most believe that the twelve days begins on December 13th, however, this is not the case.  The Twelve Days of Christmas actually starts on Christmas and continues until January 5th!  While the the age of the song itself is unknown, it first appeared in print in 1780 and is believed to be have been born from a game of Twelfth Night “memory-and-forfeits”.
