How to Interpret a Famous Carol

George Grant has a simple response to those who see the famous carol “The Twelve Days of Christmas” as a secret means of teaching the Christian faith. Grant dispels this “urban legend” and interprets it as a folk song “just intended to generally and joyously portray throughout the Yuletide season the abundant Christian life, the riches of the Church’s covenantal inheritance, and the Gospel’s ultimate promise of heaven. Sing, therefore, with new gusto and zeal. For, “every good and perfect gift comes from above.” Even partridges, pear trees, and leaping lords!”
